Safety First

Our RDO Gail MacAllister has her two doggies prepared for some fun on the water this weekend, are you?

ISA SafeTrx – The FREE Safety App

The ISA’s SafeTrx smartphone app has just been launched in the UK under the RYA. 

This will now allow the Irish Coast Guard and the MCA (the UK Maritime and Coastguard Agency) to access users’ trip details should an incident occur and liaise with each other if necessary. 

SafeTrx is used for logging passage plans anywhere on Ireland’s coastal and inland waters. If you’re going on the water this Bank Holiday make sure you download the FREE app and log your trip!
