 Recreational boating is a major contributor to New Zealand’s appalling drowning statistics. In order to address this Wellington Ocean Sports aim is that all school students in the Wellington Region will receive some safe boating education. To that end we will now be applying to the new Porirua funder, Trust House, for continuation of the fantastic work that has been commenced. Wellington Ocean Sports offer a comprehensive schools safe boating programme that includes various Coastguard Boating Education and Yachting New Zealand NCEA accredited courses.
