Always let someone know where you are going, your point of departure and when you plan to return. If your plans change, let someone know.
Give them a description or photo of your vessel, vessel registration number and details of the number of passengers on board. This will assist emergency services, should the need arise.
If you fail to return by the specified time they should call 000 immediately
Trip details flyer
We've produced an "I've gone boating" flyer, where you can record your trip details to leave with a friend or relative.
If you would like us to send you an "I've gone boating" flyer, email your postal address to firstname.lastname@example.org. The flyer has a shiny surface - so the flyer is reusable if you write on it with a water-based marker that can be easily wiped off.
The flyer is also available to download:
