Maritime Alert from NSW Maritime

NSW Maritime is calling on all skippers to take extra care when boating following two capsizes already this weekend.

NSW Maritime CEO Steve Dunn said the two incidents involved boats being rolled over in waves.

One incident occured at Narooma and one at Jervis Bay.

In both cases the boats were recreational runabouts and all people were recovered, and NSW Maritime is investigating.

Maritime reminds all skippers they are responsible for the safety of their boat and all onboard.
