A breast cancer awareness cara- van stopped at the Bay of Islands Holiday Park on Puketona Rd over the New Year. It aims to raise money for research towards finding a breast cancer cure in eight years. The refurbished caravan was designed by Trelise Cooper. Volunteers upgraded the van which will travel the country visiting holiday parks throughout the summer season. While at the Bay of Islands Hol- iday Park, $1000 was donated by the young peoplewho were staying there. Park owners Elaine and Gordon say it shows that given the oppor- tunity, a positive response from this age group can be achieved. Mark smaller craft with identification Got a dinghy or kayak? Coastguard reminds boaties to be smart on the water this summer and put contact details on their dinghies and kayaks to prevent unnecessary and costly search and rescues. Coastguard New Zealand president Colin Small says recent incidents involving unmarked small craft which were not properly secured have resulted in search and rescue operations where crew were looking for people who were never at risk. The simple task of putting a name and contact number on a dinghy or kayak can save emergency services a lot of time and energy as it ensures that you can be reached quickly and easily if it does get loose. We recommend that boaties ensure they are familiar with the water safety tips below before heading out on the water, he says. Coastguard New Zealand s Water Safety Tips: Mark your vessel (especially dinghies and kayaks) with your name and contact details All vessels should have a VHF radio as the primary means of communication. Make sure you always carry a charged-up cell phone as a backup option and keep it safe in a waterproof bag Ensure that there is a lifejacket for every person on board that is the correct size and fit Make sure your vessel is prepared cor- rectly, has all of the necessary safety equipment (flares, etc), and that your boat is in a good and sound condition Before you go on the water, always tell someone trustworthy (preferably Coast- guard) where you are going and what your intentions are Check the marine weather forecast. Coastguard s NowCas- ting service offers free up-to-date information As the skipper, you are responsible for your vessel and all the people on board. Make sure they have been given a safety briefing and know what to do in an emergency should anything hap- pen to the skipper.
