Saturday's Search

The BBC Website is reporting some sad news tonight following Saturday's search which involved several Coastguard teams and Lifeboat crews on both sides of the Solent.

As we said earlier in the week, if you're planning to go to sea (particularly on your own)
  • Always wear a life jacket and proper equipment.
  • Check the weather and sea conditions before setting off.
  • Ensure you know your limitations.
  • Have a VHF radio
  • Carry flares
And its never a bad idea to let the Coastguard know when you are leaving, where you are making for and your ETA.
