The National Sea Rescue Institute is appealing all sea users to be extra cautious while making use of the sea as big swells is being experienced along the coast.
According to NSRI spokesperson Craig Lambinon they have evacuated their equipment from their Bakoven base as high tide swells push through the base which could result to possible damage of their equipment.
“A main concern is anglers fishing from rocks who are at risk of being swept off rocks by waves that may swamp areas along the coastline. In places the swell is pushing up to 30 foot in height,” says Lambinon.
They are appealing to all sea users to wear life-jackets at all times.
