‘Waterproof bags are available for free at the RNLI and for next to nothing online.

In addition, it is about the importance of buoyancy aids. I know they don’t look very good and they aren’t great, but they are very important.

“They can save lives and I don’t know what would have happened if I hadn’t prepared and taken those things with me.”

Mali Parry-Jones of RNLI Porthdinllaen said it was important for rowers to have a mobile phone and wear a life jacket.

She said: ‘Also make sure you wear the strap around your ankle to make sure you and the board are not separated, because it is very important to stay on the board if you get into trouble.’
