Safety Boat Instructor

As Safety Boat Instructors, we are responsible for our students safety, we need to ensure that we do everything in our power to minimise the risk of injury at all times.  Installing a prop guard on your safety boat is a small price to pay to manage this risk and I urge all of you to find your voice and join me in advocating the mandatory use of prop guards on all safety boats used in our Clubs and Sailing Academies.
