Sea kayakers are encouraged to download and watch this free safety video.
It contains advice from expert kayakers and rescue professionals of the UK Coastguard and Lifeboat services, detailing which safety equipment to carry and how to raise the alarm in an emergency.
Anne Young, HM Coastguard's National Canoe and Kayak Liaison Officer, says: "This film is a useful tool for all who go to sea in small crafts. Knowing how to raise the alarm and be located make rescues more efficient and helps to save lives."
The video is a cut-down version of the full Emergency Situations film from our new DVD which shows the equipment and techniques deployed in realistic scenarios.
