Old4New Life Jacket Upgrade Event

On average there are 5 boating-related drowning deaths recorded each year in Western Australia, with the majority of people involved in these incidents not wearing a lifejacket at the time. Royal Life Saving Society WA, in conjunction with the Department of Transport, has implemented the Old4New Lifejacket Upgrade campaign which aims to improve safety amongst recreational boaters by encouraging them to upgrade their current lifejackets for new ones.

As part of the initiative, people attending Opening Day at Royal Perth Yacht Club on Saturday the 14th of October will be able to participate in the campaign.

Simply bring in your old, damaged or obsolete lifejackets and trade them in for new self-inflating or auto-inflating, slim-fitting style lifejackets at a discounted price. There will be 100 lifejackets available on the day and there is a maximum of 2 lifejacket upgrades per person. Visit the Old4New tent on the lawn between 10:00am and 2:00pm.

Cost of lifejackets:

Self-inflating lifejacket - $65.00

Auto-inflating lifejacket - $55.00
