Don’t be oblivious to the dangers of mud

If you do become stuck in mud try to spread your weight as much as possible. If you have a mobile phone call 999 and ask for the Coastguard. Avoid moving and stay as calm as you can. Discourage others from attempting to rescue you, since without the proper equipment they could become stuck too.

Stay safe – before heading out on the water get trained, check weather and tides, wear a lifejacket, avoid alcohol and keep in touch. Read more on the MCA website…
