MarineMax Panama City Beach to Host “Women on Water” Certified Course

PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla., (March 9, 2015) – MarineMax Panama City Beach announced today that they will be hosting their first Women on Water (WOW) Certified course for the season on March 21, 2015 from 10 AM to 2 PM. The course is for women only and is designed to get women behind the helm and enjoying the boating lifestyle. Due to the hands-on nature of the course there is limited capacity. To avoid disappointment MarineMax Panama City Beach recommends to call and reserve your place early.

The course is United States Power Squadron (U.S.P.S.) certified and is taught by boating safety expert Dr. Wil Hugli. He is a certified U.S.P.S. instructor and a U.S.P.S national officer who has written many U.S.P.S. courses and seminars. He is certified and has instructed in every course and seminar that the U.S.P.S. offers. The registration fee is $35 per participant and $20 for any other additional female family members. Successful participants will receive a “Certificate of Completion” and a “Patch of Certification” from the U.S.P.S.

Hosted by MarineMax Broker and Sales Consultant, Bob Fowler, half of the instruction will be in a classroom setting and the latter half will be on the water in a vessel supplied by MarineMax Panama City Beach. Course materials and other surprise items from MarineMax Panama City are included.

Women on Water, or WOW courses, are a laid-back, active, fun and supportive environment designed to build confidence behind the helm and to truly enjoy the boating lifestyle. Being United States Power Squadron certified makes this WOW course unique to MarineMax Panama City,” expressed Fowler. “The United States Power Squadron is the only agency which is certified to conduct on-water instructions by the United States Coast Guard and women, who complete the course, can receive substantial discounts on their boat insurance; saving more than the cost of the course.”

The course is not just for women new to boating. Women who have experienced the boating lifestyle and want to learn new skills and be more comfortable behind the helm will find this course exceptionally useful.

The course is limited to 12 participants. Please RSVP to Cassie Anderson at, or online at
