Skippering Tuition

Gold Coast skippering tuition

Australia is surrounded by water, and the Gold Coast is home to some the country’s most spectacular waterways, so it’s no surprise that boating is such a popular pastime and commercial activity.

The skipper is responsible for the safety of the vessel, the safety of your passengers, and the safety of others on the water. Poor training or not adhering to the responsibilities of a skipper, is the major cause of boating accidents on the water.
