Staying safe

A great day on the water is a safe day and while lifejackets are perhaps the single most important item of safety gear on any vessel, there are a number of other important safety issues to consider.

The skipper of every vessel, whether it is a humble canoe, or an ocean going super yacht, is responsible for the safety of their vessel and all on board.

Part of that responsibility includes proper planning and preparation. This includes being aware of the important safety issues related to your activity and by taking time to plan and prepare, you will help ensure a great day for all.
