Club Safety Docs
One day patrol boat safety courses are run during the season. They are open to all Club members (16yrs +) or parents of junior Club members.
While many of you know how to drive a patrol boat, this course is about rescuing and retrieving boats and sailors in the water and how to manage rigs & sails when towing. This is an essential course for Wakatere patrol boat skippers and crew.
We especially invite new members and parents of our juniors sailors to take this course so they are more confident and able to support the club in coaching programmes and when their duty roster rolls around.
Patrol Boat Duties are undertaken each week by club members (or parents of junior club members) as part of club roster. You can volunteer as a skipper or crew to support club racing and/or club regattas.
On-the-water parent support is required for our junior coaching sessions. Come dressed to get wet!
This is part of your commitment to club membership.
QR Codes + Boats
We love scanning codes at Wakatere!
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 and applies to all race management, coaches, parents and supporters using club patrol boats.
This is a mandatory requirement as part of our Maritime NZ Moss Exemption and our H&S policy.
Report any damage or maintenance issues as soon as any problems arise. Write clearly on the whiteboard in the training room. If left unreported, a small problem now could lead to a much larger one later on.
Our Patrol Boat Maintenance rep is happy to take a quick call or text to go over any immediate concerns. Graeme Milne - +64 21 244 5000
