Safety Boat Notes

  • Bad Weather is a more challenging environment for Safety Boat skills and physical fitness - if you are not confident in the face of the weather conditions at the Club then alert the Race Officer.
  • The Safety Boat can be cold and wet - Dress appropriately for your duty.
  • The Safety Boat may need to respond very quickly to an emergency:
        • Keep the boats in sight at all times.
        • Don't stray from the Safety Boat.
        • People before boats: if in doubt, leave the dinghy and attend another person in trouble elsewhere on the lake.
        • Maintain your spatial awareness when recovering a person or boat: someone else may be in trouble elsewhere.
        • Moor-up to save petrol if conditions permit.
