Recreational boating, both inshore and offshore, is one of the most popular pastimes in NSW.
This increasing traffic on all our waterways makes it more important than ever for safety on the water to be the highest priority for all boaters. Remember, whether you have a yacht, a powerboat or a tinnie, the skipper is responsible for the safety of the vessel and everyone on board.
All the information you need for safe boating can be found in the new NSW Road and Maritime Services Boating Handbook 2011-2012. This is available as an electronic download, or as a book your local NSW Road and Maritime Services Office or Marine Rescue NSW base.
