Earlier this week, The Watercraft Journal brought you the complete breakdown of California’s all-new boater safety law and how it’ll effect you, the personal watercraft enthusiast. While you Golden State residents are looking down the barrel of more government regulation, revenue collection and policing, you’re also looking to see (hopefully) a lot more responsible boating from those sharing the water with you – so that’s a good thing.
Of course, boater safety courses (which are soon to become mandatory in California) aren’t anything new, and are regularly held throughout Australia. Our Brothers in The Land of OZ know all about ’em, and have made it a point to help encourage responsible boating practices by promoting such classes. One outfit is our favorite Melbourne one-stop-shop for all things PWC, Diptech Performance!
In addition to providing PWC enthusiasts the best in customer service, performance tech and riding equipment and apparel, Diptech regularly hosts safe boating courses – nearly once a month, and the next session isn’t too far away; this upcoming Thursday 23rd October at 6pm, which coincidentally, will be the last course Diptech will be hosting before the Melbourne Cup weekend. Riders looking to participate need to complete the official course to receive their license. There are still some spots left, so call to reserve a place 8401 3956. The cost is $120 cash on the night, so be ready.
