 Safety Day Messabout

Our annual safety day will be conducted on Coochmudlo Island as we believe the water level in Wivenhoe Dam will be too low to hold the event . Our plan is to travel from the launching ramp at Masters Avenue Victoria point across to the main beach on Coochie. And hold the event there. After the capsize and reboard event we plan to have lunch on the Island, sail paddle or row off the beach for some time before returning to the mainland in company with all of members boats in convoy. Remember to bring lunch a dry set of clothes and a towel.


Be prepared to capsize your vessel and attempt to reboard and recover your vessel.  This IMPORTANT messabout will show you how your boat can, or cannot be reboarded and recovered, after a capsize incident, and how you will fare in the water.

What a better way to find this out, then here with other club members present to assist if required
