Apply the 3 Cs :

Be Considerate – mindful of the potential impact you could have on the RNLI and other emergency services. Consider our local area and whether your visit risks adversely impacting our community.

Be Conservative – check your vessel, your equipment,  the forecast, plan your route and KNOW YOUR LIMITS.

Be Consistent – follow existing safety protocols.
