The new code of practice for the Safe Operation of Recreational Craft has just been published.

This code outlines the legislative requirements that apply to all recreational craft along with recommended guidelines and best practice information on the safe operation of a range of recreational craft, including sail and motor boats, sailing dinghies, jet skis and high speed power boats, windsurfing and stand- up paddle boats, canoes, Kayaks, rowing boats and charter boats.

 

The Code of Practice can also be viewed in PDF format on the Department of Transport's website, www.dttas.ie and on www.safetyonthewater.ie.

All recreational craft users are encouraged to familiarise themselves with the code and to heed the safety advice and recommendations.
