In open water, you will also come in close proximity to larger boats, so you will learn how to properly handles waves and wakes, emergency stops and man-overboard retrievals.

By learning these advanced maneuvering skills, you will be more confident and thus safer on the open water.  And trust us, nothing is more embarassing that returning to port with fewer people that you left with. As Ricky used to tell Lucy, "you got a lot of explaining to do....".
