RYA Safety Advisory Notice 2015
- The RYA have just launched the second RYA Safety Advisory Notice at the London Boat Show, the first of which was launched at the 2014 show. The second edition focuses on six key topics; personal location devices, communication, lifejackets and lifejacket servicing, running aground, weather forecasts and effective planning.
The RYA Safety Advisory Notice 2015 offers a simple digest of critical safety issues, including those that have arisen from incidents in the past year, compiled solely for the leisure boater. It builds on the advice in the popular first edition of the Safety Advisory Notice, which covered the use of kill cords and prop guards, alcohol and boating, carbon monoxide poisoning, buoyancy aids and lifejackets, and the proper registration of EPIRB and PLBs.
