About 65% of the accidents that we deal with are linked to recreational and leisure activities.

We continue to inform those who use our shores and seas for recreation of potential dangers that can be minimised by a few simple precautions. To be successful, new ways of conveying simple but vital safety information are being adopted, that can be readily understood by those at sea and on the shore.
