The Swansea Community Boat will be licensed as a Class V passenger vessel by the Maritime Coastguard Agency (MCA). A ‘Domestic Ship Safety Management Plan’, as recommended by the MCA and working practices, as recommended by the National Community Boat Association (NCBA), will be adopted. Boat crews will be MCA or NCBA licensed, depending on the number of passengers carried.
Teachers/group leaders will be responsible for the safety of children in their care. They will be required to follow instructions given by the boat crew. No unaccompanied children will be carried on the Community Boat.
