Another popular Raglan bar crossing course for boaties is being held on Sunday 23 November.
The course, provided by Raglan Volunteer Coastguard with the support of Waikato Regional Council, will provide boaties with tips on how to safely navigate the treacherous Raglan bar which has been the scene of some serious boating mishaps over the years.
The course is being held at the Raglan Bowling Club on the corner of James and Wallis streets in Raglan.
Registration begins at 8.30am and the course itself starts at 9.00am.
The cost is $30 if prepaid to Raglan Volunteer Coastguard or $35 cash on the day.
A trip out to the bar in the coastguard’s rescue vessel is part of the course so participants need to bring their own lifejacket for this.
Course numbers are limited, so pre-register by calling the Coastguard secretary Brigid Green on 07 825 8089 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
