Advanced Sea Survival Course 18 Completed

assWellington Ocean Sports most recent Advanced Sea Survival Course ran last weekend and was attended by 15 people, our largest group yet. Many were participating as part of preparation for the upcoming Central triangle Offshore race. Others were more interested in cruising to far flung places, for whom the course was equally valuable.

This is the time of the year that activity really ramps up at Wellington Ocean Sports. Now that we are operating with only two boats there will be greater demand than we can meet, so you will need to get in quick if you want to be involved.
