Dept of Transport Media Releases
Young skippers need to be supervised
Boat owners in the Pilbara region have been reminded of the age requirements for skippering a vessel and the need to ensure the required safety equipment is on board.
Department of Transport (DoT) Senior Regional Officer Lance Whitney said the reminder followed two recent incidents off Karratha where up to eight children under the age of 16 were operating vessels found to be deficient in safety gear.
Have your say on safety equipment requirements
Please note that State laws have been updated from early March and the distances we refer to in regards to safe speed have altered from 45 to 50 meters.
As of this Saturday March 4 2017 State law has been updated to include the recognition of "Lifejacket Standards ISO 12402", providing greater choice for skippers and others who need to comply with safety requirements when on the water. The change will bring WA in line with other Australian jurisdictions.
