At the start of the season with all the preperation for getting on the water let us take a few moments to consider the basics and state of the equipment being used Nicola pearson the RNLI co-ordinator for Wales had the following tips

  • Check the Weather and tides before undertaking any trips
  • Know the limitations of both the vessel and crew
  • Make sure you have the correct equipment especially safety equipment
  • Wear your lifejacket
  • Always take warm clothes it may be warm when you go but it can get cold very quickly
  • Tell someone on the shore where you are going and when you will be back
  • If you feel your getting into trouble call the coastguard sooner rather
    than later, the lifeboat would rather be turned back than not get to you in time.

Lifejackets are no good unless worn
