MCA Sea Angling Safety Initiative

Shetland Coastguard is promoting a marine safety campaign, covering Scotland and Northern Ireland, aimed at all you Sea Angling Folk.

This initiative has been developed after recent fatal incidents involving small Sea Angling Boats in the SCOTNI area. These and other incidents have highlighted the need to raise awareness of the risks involved in this activity whilst in no way wishing to discourage people from enjoying our marine environment.

Besides dispensing advice, the Agency is asking Sea Angling boat owners to be sensible and check, before going to sea, the following:

  • The craft and its engine or sailing rig is fit for the voyage
  • An alternative mode of propulsion is on board
  • Marine band radio, Flares, Lifejackets and Anchor Gear are in good working order

It is recommended that the boat be registered with HM Coastguards free CG66 Small Boat Safety Scheme. Click on the link below to download a form or register your vessels details online.

CG66 Small Boat Safety Scheme

When planning a trip:

  • Make sure that someone ashore knows the plan and intended time of return
  • The weather and tide are suitable
  • All crew are suitable clad
  • There is enough fuel on board

Once afloat:

  • WEAR A LIFEJACKET
  • Keep alert to wind and weather changes
  • Observe the rule of the road in relation to other craft

Safety leaflets are available from local fishing tackle outlets and Shetland Coastguard or downloaded a selection below.
