What is Safe on the Wheel program all about?
A five day workshop developed using the same principals and delivery methods as the Stability Course with the goal of giving crew men the tools to be Safe on the Wheel. Navigation, Chartwork, Electronics, Buoyage, Weather and What If's will all be covered to make for a safer wheel turn. Also included is one day practical on board a fishing vessel.
Couses have been completed for 2011.
The 2012 course schedule and registration form will be added soon.
