  1. While we await word on the equine exhibit at the State Fair, other youth will be visiting the Fairgrounds this Saturday, February 18, 2017 for the Young Boater Safety Certificate Course and Exam. Wednesday, February 15, 2017 is the deadline to register for the training course offered free at the 2017 Central New York Boat Show by the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary and New York Sea Grant. The Course with same-day proctored exam will run from 9 am to 5 pm at the Horticulture Building classroom at the New York State Fairgrounds in Syracuse, NY.

    Successful completion of the free, 8-hour training program certifies youth ages 10 to 17 to legally operate a motorized boat or watercraft alone on New York waters.

    Pre-registration is required for the limited space seating for the course that will be taught by U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla 21 personnel. New York Sea Grant is taking registrations by phone at 315-312-3042.
