Wellington Community Trust delivery underway

Presentation1

 

Today the first 16 students received their 2 hour safe boating session thanks to the Wellington Community Trust. The students from Wellington High School were given a 45 minute presentation on safe boating, covering areas such as weather, safety equipment, means of communication and the use of life jackets, They then received a 1 hour 15 minute practical session on our two Muir 8.2 metre keelboat where these concepts were put into practice.

We are extremely grateful to the Wellington Community Trust for their support of the safe boating programme. Our aim is that every child in the Wellington Region will receive safe boating education. This is in response to New Zealand’s appalling drowning statistics which sees  recreational boating as the single biggest contributor to drowning and water related harm.
