Competitors are advised that the NSW Water Police will be conducting random breath testing of skippers and crew this season (sail boats and motor vessels).
Don't go overboard with alcohol. The blood alcohol limit on the water is the same as on the roads - 0.05% ... but be careful. The wind, waves and the sun combine to multiply the effects of alcohol. Your chances of disorientation and drowning are increased.
This goes for everyone - the skipper, the passengers and the crew. Be aware, random breath testing applies to the operator of a boat in NSW.
