Safety Rules

Dos Don'ts
Acquire basic swimming skills and be able to swim at least 50 metres with clothes. Abandon the boat at will and swim back to the shore.
Receive proper training and acquire basic skills. Have basic knowledge in the equipment used. Examine the buoyancy devices of the boat before setting off. Panic in the event of accidents.
Properly wear life jacket/buoyancy aid and heel-toe-covered rubber shoes, as well as clothes suitable for water sports such as swimming suits, swimming trunks, sun cap, light, permeable and fit long-sleeved clothes. Overload and randomly adjust the pre-set devices in the boat.
Have proper means of making emergency call. Bring water-proof whistle or mobile phone. Overrate your skills and physical strength to show superiority.
Always keep alert and take note of the changes in weather and the conditions of the sea. Conduct activities under poor visibility, rapid current or offshore strong wind without any shelter.
Have good rest and plenty of water. Keep physical strength for the return journey. Pay attention to sunscreen protection or keep warm. Conduct capsize training in waters with unknown depth.
Take note of the traffic conditions of the sea and the safe area for conducting activities. Underrate the weather changes and the conditions of the sea in the offshore waters.
Take part in water sports activities with companions and look after one another. Conduct water sports activities in the same waters with high-speed boats.
Inform reliable people of your destination, time of return journey and ways of contact with your companions. Take part in activities when you are tired, hungry or overeat.
Keep clear of the navigation waterway, mooring area and fishing boats. Set off for the sea in case of any doubt.
