Cruising Skipper 43 Great Success

cskipFriday morning Dec 5th saw Cruising Skipper 43 meet at the Interislander terminal at 7.30 am or shortly thereafter with boxes of food, some bags of gear and wet weather gear that surely wouldn’t be needed for 3 sunny days in the Marlborough Sounds. On arrival at Picton, Compass Charters picked us up after collecting our bags and then a quick trip around to Waikawa for the formal paperwork for the Charter.

Advanced Sea Survival Course Announced For January

20120604Ass1Wellington Ocean Sports will be running an Advanced Sea Survival Course over the weekend of Saturday 10 and Sunday 11 January 2015. Advanced Sea Survival is a comprehensive theoretical and practical course required by crew competing in Category 1 offshore races. The course is ISAF and Yachting New Zealand approved and held over one weekend.

New Coastal Medic Course Announced

New Image CBESA new Coastguard Coastal Medic Course has been announced for the weekend of 10 and 11 January 2015. This course has been specifically scheduled prior to the Offshore Medic Course for those that are yet to complete Coastal Medic, which is a prerequisite to the more advanced course.  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. 

 

Schools Safe Boating Education Programme Underway

20141127 111252 2 croppedOver the next two weeks at least 300 school children will be undertaking the Wellington Ocean Sports safe boating programme. Recreational boating is the number one cause of drowning in New Zealand and Wellington Ocean Sports are leading the charge to address this. Although swimming is quite rightly a high priority when considering the drowning statistics, most children will make it through the education system without receiving any safe boating education.

Offshore Medic course set to proceed in January

 medicWellington Ocean Sports will be running it's first ever Offshore Medic Course on 12 and 13 January 2015. Offshore Medic is an advanced course for offshore skippers and crew. It's unlikely this course will be run in Wellington again anytime soon, so do consider adjusting your summer break to ensure you can make it along. The course details the management of medical/trauma emergencies onboard for up to five days without medical assistance. 

School groups get best of the weather

20141118 110547This week we have had over 60 school children out on the water from St Marks Church School and Kelburn Normal Primary School. Both groups undertook a variety of ocean sports, with St Marks here on Monday and Kelburn on Tuesday. 39 Students from St Marks undertook 3 introductory ocean sports sessions each on Monday, although the conditions were a little overcast all sessions were able to proceed with the students making the most of their time. 

Wellington Ocean Sports November Update

 DSC03157Things are really ramping up at Wellington Ocean Sports as we edge closer to summer. Wellington had more sunshine hours than any other city in New Zealand last month and on the water was the place to be!!! Bookings are up across all the courses we offer and places are filling faster than ever due to fewer boats being available. This has meant some groups aren’t able to sail when they want to, but we are working hard at our scheduling to ensure as many people as possible are able to get out on the water and experience all the harbour has to offer.

Additional Coastal Medic course announced

 New Image CBESA new Coastguard Coastal Medic Course has been announced for the weekend of 10 and 11 January 2015. This course has been specifically scheduled prior to the Offshore Medic Course for those that are yet to complete Coastal Medic, which is a prerequisite to the more advanced course.  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. 

Weather comes right on second week of holiday programme

hol{jcomments off}The weather has finally come right on the second week of the Wellington Ocean Sports school holiday programme. Today the children are off to Sommes Island on a sailing adventure. The children have been able to participate in a kayaking, sailing, stand up paddleboard and some classroom activities thanks to some marginal weather earlier in the week.
