Second boat safety meeting being held


A SECOND boat safety meeting will be held at the Brighton Surf Life Saving Club next week.

Saddle Hill Community Board chairman Scott Weatherall said after ‘‘overwhelmi­ng’’ interest in the first meeting, which discussed crossing the Taieri Mouth bar safely, another would be held on Monday, at 7pm.

About 100 people attended the first educationa­l public safety meeting and heard from guest speakers, including recreation­al fisherman and diver Ray Beattie, who had a lucky escape after capsizing at the bar, as well as Otago harbourmas­ters.
