Kevin Headon and his team will be holding a club safety boat training session at the clubhouse on Saturday 9 April from 9:30 am until approximately 4:0pm. This will involve classroom and practical basic training in the club safety boats on the water.

Depending on skill sets of those attending we may run only some of these sessions.
