RNLI Sea Safety Information

Easter is the traditional start of the boating season. No matter where Easter falls the covers rarely come off earlier. The RNLI hopes all boat users have fair winds and calm seas during 2011.  Whilst we can only hope for that, none of us have any control over the weather. However, we do have a control on the maintenance we carry out and the readiness of our craft to withstand whatever the weather might throw at it.

Six Top Sea Safety Tips

•      Always wear a lifejacket

•     Get trained - knowledge of your activity is essential

•     Carry some means of calling for help

•     Check your engine and fuel

•     Check the weather and tide conditions before heading out

•     Tell others where you are going

If any boat owner wants particular information on sea safety and / or a discussion on equipment on the boat, a Safety Equipment Advisor will be happy to come to your boat and carry out a SEA Check, free of charge and in confidence.
