Have you suffered a boating accident?
Although boating and sailing is a popular pastime in the UK, unfortunately some people do suffer injuries whilst aboard a vessel. If you’re new to the hobby, you may feel more at risk of injury but even experienced sailors can suffer an injury at sea.
Whilst a significant number of people own their own boats, the ease of renting a vessel means that numerous people can take part. Even if you don’t live too near the sea, you can always rent a boat once you’ve reached the coast so even people living in towns and cities can partake in sailing activities.
Those who are unable to get to the coast regularly don’t have to give up on their pastime altogether. The numerous canals and rivers throughout the UK mean that there are plenty of opportunities to navigate a barge or canal boat through popular areas.
Some people enjoy sailing so much that they opt to spend their yearly holiday on a ferry or cruiser. With long cruises becoming a popular choice of holiday, many people are opting to travel the world by boat.
Whilst the majority of people travel by boat without any significant problems, sometimes injuries do occur. If you’re hurt whilst on a ferry, you may find that the ship has medical personnel on board so you can access help quickly. If you’re on a smaller boat, you may be forced to wait until help arrives but good communications systems means that the emergency services can often access people at sea quickly.
