When in or around water, it is important to wear the correct personal floatation device.

In general a life jacket should always be worn in an open boat such as a yacht or small powerboat.

If participating in a sailing dingy, windsurfing or canoeing you should use a buoyancy aid.

Don't forget that life jackets and buoyancy aids require regular servicing!
