Under a New York State rule enacted in 2020 that is known as Brianna's Law, all operators of motorized watercraft are required to take a boating safety course by Jan. 1, 2025. With that in mind, New York State Assemblywoman Jodi Giglio has scheduled a safety course that meets those requirements.

The course, to be run by the organization Safe Boating America, is from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, June 5, at the Hotel Indigo, 1830 West Main Street in Riverhead. The cost is $95, but the checkout code "ASSEMBLY" gets a participant a 50-percent discount on the course. Masking and social distancing are required.

Sign-up is at safeboatingamerica.com/license/riverhead.html. Questions can be directed to 516-216-4410 or [email protected].

Brianna's Law was named in memory of an 11-year-old girl from Long Island who died in a boating accident in 2005.
