Cowes Week now stages up to 40 daily races for around a thousand boats and is the largest regatta of its kind in the world.

If you go out on a boat ask   yourself these questions

* If I fall overboard, how do I get back on the boat?

* If I canít get back on the boat (have I used my kill cord or is the boat motoring away from me?) how do I raise the alarm?

A VHF radio is essential, donít rely on a mobile phone. The MAIB would advise the use of a personal locator beacon (PLB). When activated it sends out an immediate distress alert that will mobilise the emergency services.


Following key safety advice will keep people safe and help to reduce the demands placed on RNLI lifeboat crews, HM Coastguard and other emergency services.

That is why parents are now being urged to take charge and be Ďbeach smartí if they visit the coast to ensure they and their families have the safest summer possible, whether lifeguards are patrolling their beach or not.

Claire Hughes, director of HM Coastguard said:
We know from sad experience that whether youíre local or nor, whatever your ability of experience in your chosen sport or leisure activity, the sea can still catch you out and be unmerciful when it does. Now, more than ever we need people to respect the sea and the coast.

ĎIf you get into trouble call 999 and ask for the Coastguard and we will come to your aid. But coronavirus hasnít gone away, and we all need to follow the rules. Remember your choices might put people, including yourself and frontline responders, at risk. Take extra care in these extraordinary times.í


~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

ith beach lifeguard patrols significantly reduced the RNLI and HM Coastguard are advising the public not to use inflatables at all and for everyone, especially parents, planning a visit to a beach or the coast to follow this safety advice:


         Have a plan - check the weather forecast, tide times and read local hazard signage

         Keep a close eye on your family Ė on the beach and in the water

         Donít allow your family to swim alone

         Donít use inflatables

       If you fall into the water unexpectedly, FLOAT TO LIVE. Fight your instinct to thrash around: lean back, extend your arms and legs, and Float


In an emergency dial 999
and ask for the Coastguard
