Any person between the age of 12 and 20 who wishes to operate a vessel designed to be propelled by a motor or sail (motorboat, PWC, sailboat, sailboard) without being under direct and audible supervision must complete an approved boater education course. Any person under the age of 12 must be accompanied by and under the direct supervision of a parent or person over the age of 17. There is no minimum age to operate a sailboat if the operator has successfully passed an approved boating education course.
