Season 2 Episode 2

The 2021-22 boating season has officially kicked off with the start of National Safe Boating Week, which has a focus of increasing safer boating practices, promoting responsible boat ownership and reducing deaths and injuries on our waterways.

Whether you are out on the water to earn a living or just for fun, everybody has a responsibility to ensure the safe operation of their vessels and come home unharmed to their loved ones.

The three themes for this year’s National Safe Boating Week are maintenance, safety equipment and lifejackets.

We head out on the expansive Hawkesbury River in Sydney to see how Marine Rescue NSW members are preparing for the boating season and also get some great tips for safer boating.
