Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron says
Invitation to all RQYS members and WAGS sailors

24th September 2016
0900 in the RQYS Auditorium
Lasting approx. 1.5 hours

Maritime Safety Queensland (MSQ) officers have been involved in a series of educational safety seminars focusing on Sailing Safety. These seminars have been very well received and provide a forum for club representatives and members to ask questions and confirm their understanding of areas including:

• Emergency Preparedness
• Roles and Responsibilities of masters and crew
• Recreational Licensing requirements
• International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea 1972
• Speed on the water
• Appropriate ship registration

Marine Officers try to focus these seminars on learnings taken from actual marine incidents and investigations to provide a “from the horse’s mouth” perspective on maritime regulation and compliance enforcement. Officers are available to provide educational seminar presentations to your member group at no charge and we regularly team up with representatives of other marine agencies such as Qld Water Police, Marine Parks, Qld Boating and Fisheries, AVCG and VMR to enhance the overall educational benefit.

One seminar specifically targeted at sailing safety (maybe at RQYS) and another general marine safety seminar (maybe at MBTBC).
