Looking after the Boaties

Coastguard Canterbury promoting Safe Boating, down at the Naval Point Boat Ramp in Lyttelton. Thanks Leisa McNaughton Photography who was out taking pictures at the Navy Point Slipway. And for sharing her pictures on her Facebook Page.

She caught up with Jamie, providing information and explaining the dangers in the harbour. Educating anyone using the slipway while on duty.
If you see us down there feel free to come and have a chat. We are more than happy to chat about the local area or any safe boating tips.
