Recreational boating activity in the sea, lakes and rivers is increasing. Navigation safety issues include separating areas for particular purposes such as water skiing, swimming and sailing; controlling boat speeds close to shore; and the wearing of lifejackets by all people at all times in small craft less than 6 metres long.
There is a high degree of reliance on responsible behaviour by the recreational boating sector. In high-use areas, contracted and honorary enforcement officers assist with education and, where necessary, bylaw enforcement.
