Life jackets Oh So important !

A directive was issued this week by the Department of Transports Sports and Tourism regarding flotation devices. (life jackets)

At WHSC we are very familiar with our own internal policy regarding life jackets and a great measure of compliance is there.

A few years ago we did an inspection of life jackets at the club and over 30 % was faulty and would not have kept anybody afloat; perhaps time to do it again ?

From now on wearing no life jackets or an incorrect one is considered an offence.

For your information the link to the new Directive is here

Is a new life jacket something we might put on our Christmas list this winter ??
