There s no better way to keep safe out on the water than being pre- pared with basic know- ledge. That s the message from Waiheke Coast- guard and two boating courses are on offer at Waiheke Community Education starting this month. Tutor Christy Ralphs is encouraging everyone who goes out boating, even if they are not in charge of a vessel, to take the course. Waiheke is a boaties paradise -- let s make it a safe summer on the water." Ms Ralphs says the Day Skipper s course is an excellent introduction to keeping safe on the water, and to give parti- cipants more confidence in their knowledge. "If you are in charge on a boat you are required to be a respon- sible skipper, know the rules of the road and how to navigate. Every- one should also know what to do in an emerg- ency, and ensure they have the right equip- ment." The Day Skipper course runs on Mondays from 7pm to 9pm for seven weeks, starting August 6. The course costs $220 including a Coastguard Boating Study Pack. The VHF Marine Radio Operator course is August 18 from 10am to 4pm. It costs $100. Other courses at Com- munity Education this term include woodwork, sewing, goal setting, French for travellers, te reo Maori and Master- class cooking with Ana Schwarz.
