Emily's Code

Emily’s Code was launched at the RYA Suzuki Dinghy Show 4th March 2017

It is a reminder that SAFETY should be uppermost and the code contains

a check list of key safety preparation actions for water users.


The code is straightforward. It states:

“Wear a suitable lifejacket or buoyancy aid

Service equipment

Get trained

Make a plan

Know your limits

Carry distress signals

Use the kill cord — that is a way of turning off the engine in a boat

Know your boat

Have a radio

Check the weather”.


Emily’s Code and background is available on the RYA WEB site through this link

Background details are also available in many media sources of which the

House of Commons Hansard on-line  (link) would perhaps be the most respected

Our local Telegraph also covered the code (link) 4th March 2017
