SAFETY NOTICE: Beware of Tugs & Tows

A reminder to all users of Jericho Sailing Centre: it is illegal and extremely dangerous to sail/paddle/row, or otherwise navigate, between a tug and it’s tow. It is exceptionally rare to see a tug without a tow in our vicinity. A tow may be as much as 750M behind which has fooled some people. If you see a tug, look for a tow. Always yield the right of way to commercial vessels.
