Over the last 3 days 100 students from Porirua College have undertaken the Wellington Ocean Sports Safe Boating Programme. After receiving a 45 minute classroom based safe boating presentation the students then complete a 90 minute water based session in either sailing, kayaking  windsurfing or stand up paddle boarding.

Recreational boating is the number 1 contributor to New Zealand’s appalling drowning statistics, yet absolutely no safe boating education is currently being delivered to schools. Wellington Ocean Sports is now addressing this and have put over 600 children through the programme in the last 3 months. We seek to expand the programme to include every school in the Wellington Region.
