Health & Safety

SAFETY POLICY

As a club member, it is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to ensure that any of your actions or inactions do not cause harm or injury to you or anyone else.

Personal flotation devices (PFDs) must be worn by everyone afloat. This includes coaches, sailors & parents in club patrol boats.

NO ONE under the age of 15 yrs may be in control of a Wakatere club patrol boat, this applies whether there is an adult present or not. The skipper must have completed a certified Rescue Patrol Boat course or be a 'Wakatere approved skipper'.

Sign on/off for the use of each club patrol boat by scanning the QR sticker on each boat. This is an important part of our Club's H&S procedure.

For the launching & recovery of club patrol boats - centre console and larger boats must use the public vehicle access ramp (south/east of the club). Smaller tiller steers may use the central beach ramp.

Patrol Boat Safety Courses

Wakatere offers members and parents of junior club members, the opportunity to enrol in a certified Patrol Boat Safety Course so they are able to skipper a club boat as an 'approved skipper' this season and the next. No previous experience required. 

The course is fully subsidized by Wakatere in the expectation that people will support club racing and coaching this season.

Register your interest in the next course and we will be in touch when a date is confirmed -

Tractor Conditions of Use

Only persons given familiarisation training of the tractor are allowed to operate this equipment and they must be a club member. Formal training is organized by our Safety Officer.

The tractor may never use the central beach ramp. It must only operate on the public vehicle ramp.

A hi-vis vest must be worn. 

Water Usage at Wakatere

Following the 2021 Auckland drought, we will continue to minimize our water use at Wakatere following these guidelines:

  1. Only use hoses with trigger nozzles (all club hoses will have these fitted)
  2. 30 seconds maximum time to wash any members' boats
  3. Allocate an adult to run the hose when washing kids boats to conserve water
