Located on the coast of West Dorset, picturesque Lyme Regis is often referred to as ‘The Pearl of Dorset’.
Historically the town was developed to be a major port. A harbour wall, known as ‘The Cobb’ is packed with history.
Lyme Regis is popular in the summer with all kinds of activities, such as yacht racing and power boat rides. Safety in such activities is very important, thus preventing accidents and injury.

What to do after a sporting accident
There are certain steps you should take following your accident. Your main priority is to get some medical attention. Inform the person responsible for supervising the activity or any member of staff. If there is an accident book then you should also enter the incident in the book, the documented record will support your claim for compensation.
