NEW ROSS Boat Club is encouraging all water users to take part in their upcoming powerboat level 2 and the department VHF/DSC marine radio courses.
The true value of both courses may only become event when one is in trouble. The little knowledge may help in keeping a cool head, doing the right thing and getting you and your crew safely home.
As for the powerboat certification it will get you a discount off most insurance companies , and for the higher power boats it is required to get the insurance.
For anyone interested in getting their marine vhf radio licence, the Boat Club intends running a course in February over three evenings.
The club requires names by January 23 in order to book the instructors and pay the examiners for the course. To book message New Ross Boat Club on facebook or phone John on 0863889652. Places will be limited.
