MAST Flare Nights

Mast has been busy around the boat ramps over summer as well as doing Flare & Safety nights around the state. Recently we have been to Wynyard and last night, Wednesday 26 February, we were at Montrose Bay Yacht Club where 54 turned out in better conditions than the last time we were there.
Next Wednesday night, the 5th of March, we will be at Tamar Yacht Club where we hope to see a big crowd. The best so far this summer has been 124 at Kettering Yacht Club in December. Last year MAST ran 38 flare demonstrations around the state.
Since last October 18 people have been rescued from kayaks/canoes/sit-on-tops that we know about. MAST, Kingborough Council, and SLST ran a successful kayak skills session on Browns River during January and we are looking at doing more of these around the state with two scheduled for Lauderdale and Dodges Ferry during March.
