WBC Safety Patrol Boat Course
Saturday 2nd March 2019
All day 8:30am – 4pm
Wakatere Boating Club


This course is essential for those who wish to skipper Wakatere patrol boats. You will learn how to control a small RIB, carry out rescues safely, and be a capable support boat skipper. Places are limited to 9 club members or parents of junior club members with or without any qualifications or much experience driving a patrol boat.

The course will include both theory and practical instruction. The course is FREE but the certificate will cost each member $30. The course is offered in the expectation that you will then move into skippering patrol/safety boats at some club events.

The course will be run at the club by a qualified instructor, Phil Bishop, Auckland Sailing School. On passing, you will receive an official CBES Club Safety Boat Operator Certification.


You will need warm clothing or wetsuits and footwear suitable for boating, towel and a change of clothing. Please bring your own lunch and personal lifejacket if you have one. Otherwise a lifejacket will be provided.
