New Watersafety NZ website and 2009 Drowning report

Water Safety NZ have launched their new website and also released the 2009 Drowning Report. Not sure if windsurfing fits under 'sailing' or not but statistically it looks like sailing is about the safest thing you can do on the water (5 year average 1% of all drownings compared to around 10% each for power boats, boating and fishing). Click More for details and the report in pdf format.

Five drowned and close calls reinforce water safety concerns during holidays

The Christmas and New Year holiday period has resulted in five drowning deaths in New Zealand.  A number of other water related fatalities and near misses have reinforced the importance of water safety education and attention to supervision around water at all times.  Good fortune has contributed to survival in a number of instances and thankfully not more fatalities have occurred as a result of poor decision making.
