Recreational Vessel Safety

With large ships constantly entering and leaving our ports, it's up to you as a responsible skipper to ensure you and your passengers remain safe. You MUST stay well clear of the shipping channel and only cross when it's safe do so. Remember, you're the skipper, and you're responsible.
