Every year, around 200 people drown in the coastal waters around the UK and Ireland. These tragedies happen to people taking part in a wide range of water-based and waterside activities.
Research has proven that wearing a lifejacket can increase your chances of survival by up to four times if you’re immersed in cold water.
Whatever your activity, wearing a well-fitted, well-maintained and suitable lifejacket or buoyancy aid could save your life.
St Mawes Harbour has lifejacket lockers available for the temporary safe storage of lifejackets.
