Sail, Power & Watersports Show stand, with lifejacket advice
The RNLI are running a lifeboat simulator at the Sail, Power and Watersports Show at Earls Court in London.
The show runs from 26-30 November.
For your chance to experience a rescue, as witnessed through the eyes of a volunteer lifeboat crew member from the bridge of a Tamar class all-weather lifeboat, visit the RNLI’s stand (A34) at the show.
Commenting on the RNLI’s presence at the show, Andy Whyte, National Campaigns & Events Manager for the RNLI, says: “In the run up to the RNLI’s national fundraising day – SOS Day – on Friday 30 January, I’d like to put out an SOS to all sail, power and watersports enthusiasts attending the show, on behalf of all the RNLI’s volunteer lifeboat crews and lifeguards.
“We sincerely hope that visitors to the show will experience the lifeboat training simulator for themselves and that, as sea users, they’ll think about making a regular donation to the charity or get involved in raising money on SOS Day.”
The RNLI’s stand (A34) will also include lifejacket clinics with RNLI Sea Safety volunteers, a chance for a spot of Christmas shopping as RNLI Christmas cards, calendars and stocking fillers will be for sale; along with the chance for leisure sea users to make a regular donation to the charity by becoming a member of the RNLI.
