Noticed this post on Ballyholme's FB page - Applies to every person returning to boating #staysafe

SEVEN “C”S FOR SEA SAFETY Following our earlier post about yesterday's rescue of a 13-year old boy, we thought it might be useful to re-publish our Seven "C"s for sea safety. At the RNLI, our aim is to help make your time on the water more enjoyable – and safe. The last thing we want to do is discourage people from getting out and having fun on the water. ...
Paddle boarding, kayaking and small dinghy sailing are great fun, and are an inexpensive way to get on the water – but the safety rules are just as important as they are for bigger boats and craft.
COMMUNICATE
- Before you set off let someone know your plans
- Have some means of getting in touch if things go wrong
COMPANY
- Being on the water is great fun. Why not arrange to go with friends?
- Even better, join a club, where you can get advice, training, and there will be rescue boats
CONDITIONS
- Before you set off make sure you are aware on the wind and the tide
- Check the local weather forecast – in coastal areas conditions can change quickly
- Avoid areas with rip currents
CLOTHING AND EQUIPMENT
- Are you wearing the right gear – wet suit, buoyancy aid, boots and gloves?
- Remember it will be much colder on the water than ashore
- If you end up in the water, it will be colder still
- Is your board/kayak/dinghy in good order?
COMPETENCE
- I know we all think we are invincible, but be honest with yourself – are you able to do what you want to do?
- If not, don’t worry – training will be available near you.
CALM
- If the worst happens, and you get into difficulty, stay calm and try to conserve your energy
- Wherever possible, stay with your board/kayak/dinghy – this will provide buoyancy and make you easier to spot
- Do whatever you can to attract attention. If you can do it, the international distress signal is to hold both arms out to the side, and flap them up and down.
COASTGUARD
- If you see someone who you think might be in danger, don't assume someone else is doing something about it
- If you are not sure, make the call – we would rather attend and not be needed, than needed and not attend
- Dial 999 and ask for the Coastguard – let them decide what to do based on the information you give them
- In coastal waters, don’t ask for the police. They will only pass on your call to the Coastguard and this can waste vital minutes See More
