Bureau of Meteorology's Five Vital Checks for Boaters
The Bureau of Meteorology is seeking the help of sailing clubs to improve boaters' safety by standardising the messages around checking the weather before they go boating. The Bureau would like to encourage boaters to apply the 5 Vital Weather Safety Checks before heading out on the water.
This action aligns with the marine safety education work plan that is currently being coordinated by the Australian and New Zealand Safe Boating Education Group (ANZSBEG). To support this initiative, the Bureau has recently released the Marine Weather Knowledge Centre which holds range of educational materials to assist the community's understanding about marine safety. This includes step-by-step information about how to do the 5 Vital Weather Safety Checks, along with videos, infographics and links to a range of marine weather forecast services.
Below are some suggested links, including the "Five Vital Weather Safety Checks" for you to consider prior to sailing. This information is important for your safety out on the water.
