We also provide vital safety services consisting of AIS stations, Land & marine trip logging services to ensure those who go out come home safely.
Our education services are provided by our volunteers who have skills & knowledge with various backgrounds from emergency & commercial radio knowledge and skills with the main aim of teaching correct procedures and skills.
It is recommended everyone always wears a lifejacket while crossing a bar. Your boat can capsize quickly and it is almost impossible to put on a lifejacket in choppy waters. Assess the wave patterns and choose your route carefully, avoiding high standing waves. Once you have started, keep going—trying to turn around in front of an incoming wave can be dangerous. Never underestimate a coastal bar. Even small waves can capsize, swamp, or sink a boat.
