Killer whales, but not a shark in sight
LOCAL helicopter crews keep a close watch
along the local coastline, as they conduct aer-
ial tours on a daily basis, on the lookout for
sharks or anything untoward from their van-
tage point high in the sky.
And the good news is that not a shark has
been spotted from the air in our waters since
the holiday season commenced.
John Deans, of the Phillip Island Helicopter
service, said that a shark estimated at about
four metres in size was spotted from the
air off the sand bar at the eastern entrance
at San Remo before Christmas, but has not
been seen since.
Phillip Island Helicopters completes at least
five scenic tours a day in the holiday season
taking visitors along our local coastline, and
crew members are always on the lookout for
sharks as they circumnavigate the island.
To date, not one shark has been spotted

By the end of January, the young pups
will have ventured into the ocean and will
be cheekily swimming up to and around the

Kids have fun
learning to sail
A GROUP of 40 kids had loads of fun
learning how to sail at the Cowes Yacht
Club over the last week.
The kids learned about water safety, how
to rig a yacht and then how to sail one of
the club’s training boats.
And you’ve got the chance to get involved
too, with another program starting on
Wednesday, January 11 (today).
The learn to sail program, called Tack-
ers, is for children aged from seven to 12,
and is all about fun and learning through
games and challenges.
Cowes Yacht Club will be running the
program from January 11-15.
Teens and adult courses are available
too. All information is available on cowe-
About 40 children participated in the Cowes Yacht Club ‘Learn to Sail’ program held
