Winter Talk Series - Boat Safety Night 

These evenings are a great way to come down to the Club with your family and friends, get to meet other Members of the Club and learn some interesting information. These events will be held on the second Wednesday of each month during Winter with each evening paired up with a Curry Buffet for only $25. 

Our next information evening will be held on Wednesday August 14th. 2019, and will cover the basics of what you will need to know about boat safety. PFSYC has the pleasure in securing a speaker from the DOT who will be covering flare experience and training as well as life jacket use and training. 

We are also offering Members the opportunity to set off your flares. If your flares are within 6 months of expiry bring them down as you will be given the chance to set them off under the correct supevision. Don't worry if your flares have expired, our demonstrator will be bringing some along for you to try and will also happily take your expired flares and EPIRB's so they can be disposed of correctly.
Following our flare experience and training, the information evening will cover lifejacket use and training. Have an old, tatty, out of date life jacket? Bring it down as we will be offering a discounted rate on the new self-inflating jackets with the trade in of your old jacket. 

We will also be covering the 30 second challenge - do you think you could complete it? This night really does not get much better!

For more details please click here.
Please note bookings are essential so we can ensure we have enough flares and lifejackets.
