WATER SAFETY PATROL
ESRA also provides safety services for local community events. We have provided safety escort
services to people undertaking charity canoe/kayak journeys through our patch.
We have also been on patrol for Skiff racing at Golspie, Helmsdale, raft races in various locations
over the years, National 18s at Royal Findhorn yacht club, safety cover for Queen Mary II visit to
Invergordon and for visit of HMS Helmsdale to Helmsdale.
Also, on 1st January every year, at Dornoch, people run into the water as part of the "Loony Dook". As
the water is at its coldest during winter, we have personnel in the water (fully kitted up) in case
any participants get into difficulty.
