Keep these rules of thumb in mind whenever you are on or by the water:

  1. Think safety at all times. Planning reduces risk.
  2. Bring necessary equipment, make sure it is in good condition and easily accessible.
  3. Respect the sea and the weather. Only go out in a boat when it is safe.
  4. Know the rules of the sea, and make sure to follow them.
  5. Wear life jackets or other flotation devices.
