Free RNLI Lifejacket Clinic in Bangor
During Sunday 14th August between 11am and 4 pm the Royal National Lifeboat Institution will be hosting a free Lifejacket Clinic at Bangor Marina.The check is well worth while as last year the bulk of jackets tested in Cork and Dublin failed the test.

Anyone owning a lifejacket is invited to bring it along to the clinic and have it checked free of charge for safety.

During past lifejacket clinics, safety checks have revealed some astonishing potential life threatening maintenance issues.

This year Peter Bullick, a volunteer RNLI Sea Safety Officer and his dedicated team will be on hand to offer free lifejacket safety checks. They will also offer impartial advice on what maintenance action to take.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
