As the skipper, you're responsible for safety of the vessel and people on board. Be prepared to keep everyone safe and enjoy time on the water.
Weather conditions on NSW waterways can change quickly, especially on open waters. Check forecasts before you go out and while you're on the water.
Before you go on the water, make sure your vessel and equipment are in good working order. If anything needs fixing or replacing, do it before you go.
Before you go on the water, use our checklists to ensure you have the safety equipment you need for your vessel and the specific conditions.
