Four tips for boating abroad

The waning summer days can offer some of the best conditions for sailing and boating.  But, before you head out to sea, keep these four safety tips in mind.

1. Plan ahead:  Check weather forecasts, research your destination harbour, find an alternate destination in case of an emergency, and conduct a thorough safety check of the boat and its contents

2. Review any navigational restrictions you may encounter on your voyage and the cruising range of your insurance policy

3. Carry the correct documentation, including your passport and proof of liability cover

4. Know your limitations:  Even the best crew on the best vessel can fall victim to rough waters.  Be aware of changing weather conditions, and know when to turn back and find safe harbour
