The main objective is to increase Safety of Life at Sea.

 

1) Build a group of friends who will keep in touch with each other and offer their help in case of emergency. The club will compile a data base of telephone numbers of boat owners. Every member can keep a copy, so he/she can contact other members in case of emergency at sea.

 

2) Educate members on safety issues.

 

3)      Eventually purchase our own boat to offer free emergency and beach patrol services.

 

4)      Co-Ordinate / work closely with local authorities such as the Malta Maritime Authority, Civil Protection, AFM and the Police force on safety at sea issues

 

5) Charges:-

 

       a) There will be no charge by the club when service is given from member   to member, however the clubs accepts a small donation if possible.

 

        b) Members may charge other members a minimal charge to cover expenses incurred as agreed by the member provider and the member receiver. However a guide line will be issued by the club.  Every service given must be reported to the club.
