Burnham-On-Sea yachtsmen complete sea safety checks

Two Burnham-On-Sea yachtsmen have been presented with RNLI sea safety stickers after completing safety checks conducted by David Humphrey, Sea Safety Advisor at the town's RNLI Station.

A Sea Safety Check is not a pass or fail, a survey or an inspection, but a free, friendly and confidential discussion in which impartial safety advice, designed for all types of leisure boats, is given.

The five main points of the checks focus on wearing lifejackets, checking engines and fuel, telling others where you are going, carrying a means of calling for help, and keeping an eye on tides and weather.

Chris Spencer, Lifeboat Sea Safety officer at Burnham RNLI, last week presented a Sea Safety Check 2008 sticker to Peter Emery after his boat 'Jeanidee', a 25 foot sailing boat, completed a sea safety check.

And David Humphrey, RNLI Sea Safety Advisor, presented a Sea Safety Check 2008 sticker to Rod Southwell of Burnham Motor Boat (as pictured) after his 33 foot sailing boat, 'Walrus', recently completed a sea safety check.
