Have you checked your lifejacket this year yet?

As part of Maritime Safety Week our team will be holding a lifejacket clinic at the Dover Marina Open Weekend on Saturday 6th July between 10am and 4pm. This clinic is totally free and our trained RNLI Community Safety Team members will check your lifejacket.  This check is not supposed to be a substitute for routine servicing and checks carried out by a lifejacket supplier. Please pop down if you are in the area, as recently one of our ‘walk the pontoons’ initiatives highlighted a sailors lifejacket which he had previously been told had been checked and was fit to use by another member of the sailing community.
