Alcohol and boating don’t mix

Friday, December 11th, 2009

Approaching the Christmas and New Year holiday period is a good time to remind ourselves that alcohol and boating don’t mix.

Every skipper should be aware of the legal limit for drinking where you sail or go boating and ensure you don’t exceed it. A better alternative is to say no to drinking alcohol while you’re on the water and wait until you’re safely back ashore.

When you are in charge of a yacht, motor boat or dinghy you need to be fully alert. Dangerous situations develop quickly, particularly when there are large numbers of occasional skippers out on their boats celebrating New Year’s Eve.

It’s not just a matter of breaking the law, you could kill or seriously injure someone. And that someone could be you.
