Ocean Safety is holding a liferaft-servicing open weekend on 18-19 February

Do you know what your liferaft looks like? Do you know how your lifejacket works? Have you ever let off a hand-held flare?

Ocean Safety, in association with Yachting Monthly, is holding a liferaft-servicing open weekend at its Southampton HQ on the weekend of 18-19 February, from 1000 to 1600.

Come along to see liferafts being opened and safety equipment demonstrated. Bring your liferaft, lifejackets, family and crew.

Experts will be able to discuss and advise on all types of equipment, including liferafts, lifejackets, EPIRBS, MOB equipment, parachute anchors and drogues.

A flare demonstration will be held on both days where participants will be able to fire a hand-held flare.

Ocean Safety is based at Saxon Wharf, Lower York Street, Southampton, SO14 5QF. For more information, or to book a time slot, call Katie Brattle on Tel: 023 8072 0800 or email: kbrattle@oceansafety.com.
