Remember safety check before taking in Mandurah Xmas lights

Skippers planning to view Christmas lights from Mandurah’s canals are being urged to complete a safety check before arriving at the boat ramp.

Skippers planning to view Christmas lights from Mandurah’s canals are being urged to complete a safety check before arriving at the boat ramp.

To assist skippers the Department of Transport (DoT) has published a special guide detailing correct navigation, including lights, and other safety requirements to be checked as part of preparation.

DoT Senior Marine Officer Adam Rando said many local and visiting skippers would be navigating busy Mandurah canals in the coming weeks.

“The guide is a handy reference to have on board and contains tips for safe navigation at all times on the growing network of canals in the Peel region,” Mr Rando said.

There is a significant increase in the number of commercial and recreational vessels navigating the canals in December and January as a result of the colourful displays of Christmas lights at many canal homes.

All vessels on the water between sunset and sunrise were required to display the appropriate navigation lights. Skippers are advised to check their vessel’s navigation lights are operational as part of the routine safety checks undertaken before a voyage and recommend they carry spare bulbs on board.

“Skippers are reminded that they are responsible for the safety of all of those on board their vessel and those who properly plan their voyage limit the chance of an incident,” Mr Rando said.  

“DoT officers will be working closely with the Water Police to assist skippers and monitor compliance with safety requirements”.

For a copy of the new guide visit the Navigation lights page.
