Vessel Capsize

A vessel can capsize as a result of excessive speed, rough seas, surf, high wind, shifting of weight in the boat, inexperience and stupidity. A capsize can happen in seconds.

  • Always have your life jacket in an accessible position and always wear it in vessels under 6 metres in length
  • Survivors from a capsize should remain together
  • Always remain with the floating vessel and never attempt to swim to shore
