Borrow a life jacket
Heading out onto the lake, but need a life jacket? No problem! You can borrow one from the local search and rescue service for free. They stock life jackets in all sizes, from 0 kg to +100 kg. You can borrow them for up to a week, but due to how popular this lending scheme is, please make sure you only borrow a life jacket for the number of days you actually intend to use it.
