Respect The Water

This is a campaign by the RNLI for the south-east of England.  The RNLI pride themselves on saving lives, but drowning is the second highest cause of death behind road accidents.

80% of the approximately 480 people who drown in the UK every year are men aged from 35 to 60. Most are killed while walking along the coast, swimming, or by falling into open water. The effects of alcohol are at the heart of many of these accidents.
