Know your flags

Know your flags

It is really important to know your flags on a beach as they are telling your different things!

Big Orange Windsock - this indicated the wind direction and the wind speed! If the wind sock if flying when you are at the beach, you should NOT use inflatable's.

Red Fag - This flag indicated danger, never enter the water when a red flag is flying.

Black and white chequered flag - this indicated an area made by the beach lifeguards that is for surfers and kayakers only.

Red and Yellow flags - these are the flags you want to be looking out for, they indicate an area on the beach where is safe to swim and enjoy yourself while being watched by a beach lifeguard.

 

Remember enjoy your summer safely.

Stay safe on the beach this summer

Stay safe on the beaches across Gower this summer with these helpful tips from the RNLI. Where ever possible swim at a beach with a lifeguard on visit www.goodbeachguide.co.uk to find the beach closest to you with a lifeguard.

Always read and obey the safety signs, they will often be informing you of any dangers that could occur. On lifeguard manned beaches swim between the yellow and red flags as these are the safest areas to be swimming in.

Avoid swimming alone If you see someone getting into difficulty, do not try help them unless you are trained as they could push you uner the surface in a panic, alert the beach lifeguard or if there is no lifeguard call 999 or 112 and ask for the coastguard.
