FLOAT TEST

CAMANO SAIL AND POWER, LLC

                                                                        FLOAT TEST                           

Every participant in any small sailboat program at Camano Sail and Power must successfully pass a float test prior to the first water session of such 
program.  In deep water, while wearing a wet suit and booties, you must float, tread water or swim in place for ten minutes.  In the final minute of the test you must put on a PFD (personal flotation device) while continuing to tread water.  A ten-minute float test is valid for two years for any small sailboat program at Camano Power and Sail. 

Float tests may be taken at any swimming pool or beach under the supervision of an American Red Cross lifeguard.  Float tests will be administered at the Camano Island State Park waterfront facility of Camano Sail and Power, in the waters of Saratoga Passage,  and must be witnessed by two instructors or instructional assistants who will administer the test from a safety boat holding a line attached to the waist of the person being tested.
