‘Float to Live’.

With one in three people admitting that they do not know what to if they unexpectedly get into difficulty in the water, Active Torridge is supporting the RNLI’s ‘Float to Live’ campaign again this summer.

According to the RNLI, on average 45 people each day are aided by their crews across the UK, and with the local beaches about to get busy over the Bank Holiday weekend, Active Torridge is sharing details of the ‘Float to Live’ campaign.

If you find yourself in difficulty, the best way to float is to tilt your head back with your ears submerged. Try to relax and breathe normally. You can gently move your hands to help you stay afloat if you need to. Spread your arms and legs out to improve stability – and it’s OK if your legs sink, we all float differently. Once your breathing is under control, call for help or swim to safety.
