Fo­cus on boat­ing safety

Hawke's Bay Today - - Nation -

Yes­ter­day marked the start of Boat­ing Safety Week and mar­itime New Zealand is brac­ing for the usual spike in boat­ing deaths. Spokes­woman Sharon Forsyth says the most im­por­tant thing peo­ple can learn is that life­jack­ets are more ef­fec­tive when they are be­ing worn. Forsyth says about 20 boat­ies die each year and that’s too many, es­pe­cially when there are sim­ple things peo­ple could do to keep them­selves safe.
