Swim Safe returns to teach children water safety

Sat, 11 Jun 2016


The RNLI will be running their 'swim safe' course again this summer. 
 
The scheme was launched for the first time on Island last year and saw more than 180 children learn how to stay safe when in or near open water. 
 
Last year the RNLI lifeboat on the Isle of Man was launch 47 times to people who were in trouble at sea - rescuing 52 people. 
 
The sessions include a land-based safety lesson with a life guard followed by in-water tuition by a swimming teacher at Fenella beach in Peel. 
 
Malcolm Kelly is the press officer for the Peel Lifeboat and he tells us a little about what the children will get to learn:
