WOS Spring Update

roof montageSpring is just around the corner and places are filling fast on the courses we have running between now and Christmas. Although it’s been a fantastic winter at Wellington Ocean Sports with plenty of activity, we are looking forward to some settled warmer weather. I’m really pleased to announce that we have finally replaced our leaky roof!!! So no more bucket in the middle of the classroom on rainy days


Advanced Sea Survival course huge success

DSC03177On the 22nd and 23RD August Wellington Ocean sports ran an “Advanced Sea Survival training course”, which was well represented with course participants flying in from around the country. The group had an amazing variety of experience aboard sailing vessels, some of them I am sure they would not want to repeat! Kim Mc Morran? There is a Wardroom story there..........

Coastal Medic Course this weekend

Coastal Medic is a prerequisite to the more advance Offshore Medic.  As well as its marine applications, this course exceeds the Health and Safety requirements of “two day workplace first aid”, so has many commercial usages.
