Life Jackets Save Lives - When They Work!

Some of you may have already read my previous article about how important it is to wear a life jacket whilst out at sea! If not you can find it here...

This week's tip follows on from that article, provided by Sticky Stapylton who responded to our email...

"Thank you for your excellent advice.

As a sail training instructor I know the need. Can I suggest that you consider also emphasising the need to check the life jacket before putting it on?  The number of times on sail training yachts I have found the gas cylinder is either not properly screwed in or has actually been discharged is legion! Unless the cylinder is firmly secured it will fail to inflate the life jacket if fired."


You can read more tips from Sticky in All at Sea or online here...
