With the recent and continuing good weather lots of people have been taking to the water and beaches.
As part of RNLI Arklows Maritime festival weekend August 1-3, Arklow RNLI are delighted to welcome and host the RNLI Sea Safety Roadshow on August 1 & 2.
The Roadshow will be at the Live from the Lifeboat Station Radio Broadcast by East Coast FM’s Morning Show with Declan Meehan from 10-1pm Aug 1. The Roadshow will then move to Bridgewater Shopping Centre(2-6pm and then 10-4, Aug 2) where we’ll have Lifejacket Clinics, a Live Advice Aboard on one of the teams boats along with Free Water Safety Advice for the general public.
Mark Corcoran-Arklow RNLI’s Volunteer Lifeboat Sea Safety Officer said:
“Given the recent good weather and the number of incidents the RNLI have responded to in recent weeks, it is timely to have the Sea Safety Road Show here in Arklow”, “We look forward to seeing boat owners and the general public alike down at the Lifeboat station or over at Bridgewater shopping centre and giving them free impartial advice on safety on the water.” “Please bring down your lifejackets for the free Lifejacket clinic.”
