Here at Nipper Skipper we think it’s important to share stuff and generally be nice to one another! So here’s a starting list of a selection of companies and organisations with whom we work, share direction and/or exchange ideas and we thought it would be a nice thing to share them with everyone else. Please note: By placing these organisations here on our website we are not in anyway directly endorsing or becoming implicit in their activities.

Pip says: One way to prevent accidents is to use a safety line for children on board boats, keeping them attached and preventing them from falling overboard. The line should be the right length so that they stay out of the water even if they do fall.
