You Safety On Board Mischief

The safety of everyone on board is our first priority. Before each voyage on Mischief we have a safety briefing for all crew. There are specific points that must be covered during these briefing sessions and the Captain must satisfy himself that all members of the crew understand the safety points before setting sail. These include fire alarms & drills,  man overboard procedures & recovery and the wearing & use of life saving equipment. The Skipper and his crew are responsible for the safety of the vessel and everyone on board. If at any time he feels this safety is at risk in any way through inappropriate or irresponsible behaviour, he may have to make the decision to return to port.
