Members are reminded that the prime purpose of these boats is to afford safety cover

The Management Committee also requests that persons scheduled for a safety boat duty,

Safety boat crews must ensure that they are carrying one of the club’s walkie-talkies,
that it is turned on and tested, prior to going afloat.
