Cruising Skipper 43 Great Success

cskipFriday morning Dec 5th saw Cruising Skipper 43 meet at the Interislander terminal at 7.30 am or shortly thereafter with boxes of food, some bags of gear and wet weather gear that surely wouldn’t be needed for 3 sunny days in the Marlborough Sounds. On arrival at Picton, Compass Charters picked us up after collecting our bags and then a quick trip around to Waikawa for the formal paperwork for the Charter.

New Coastal Medic Course Announced

New Image CBESA new Coastguard Coastal Medic Course has been announced for the weekend of 10 and 11 January 2015. This course has been specifically scheduled prior to the Offshore Medic Course for those that are yet to complete Coastal Medic, which is a prerequisite to the more advanced course.  As well as its marine applications, this course exceeds the Health and Safety requirements of “two day workplace first aid”, so has many commercial usages. 


The Brothers Race - rip, shite and a little bust!

The forecast was daunting. Northerly 10 gradually rising to 25 in the morning and 40 by the evening. We all know you can add 20 more when travelling along the South Coast. 60kn on the way home? That would be interesting.

Schools Safe Boating Education Programme Underway

20141127 111252 2 croppedOver the next two weeks at least 300 school children will be undertaking the Wellington Ocean Sports safe boating programme. Recreational boating is the number one cause of drowning in New Zealand and Wellington Ocean Sports are leading the charge to address this. Although swimming is quite rightly a high priority when considering the drowning statistics, most children will make it through the education system without receiving any safe boating education.
