Boating safety floats at Marine13

Peter Chennell - speaker at Marine13.
Marine13 will see a focus on a wide range of topics, but none more important to the safe enjoyment of boating than the correct and responsible use of lifejackets.

Peter Chennell, a world-leading expert on lifejackets from the UK’s Royal National Lifeboat Institution will present on the global challenge facing the boating safety sector to encourage greater rates of wear of lifejackets, regularly shown to be one of the most important pieces of safety equipment on a boat.

Improved boating safety education programs are central to ensuring safe and responsible boating


The Office of Boating Safety and Maritime Affairs, within Transport for NSW, is a key partner in the worldwide program of events and safety education messages promoting lifejacket wear and is currently working with the boating industry to develop innovative solutions to increase wearing of lifejackets and appropriate maintenance/servicing. P

Peter Chennell will also lead an international workshop on lifejackets following the main conference and Marine13 is delighted to have secured his support for the events in April 2013.
