Fight your instincts, not the water. Everyone who falls unexpectedly into cold water wants to follow the same instinct, to swim hard and to fight the cold water. But when people fight it, chances are, they lose.
If you find yourself unexpectedly in the water, do as little as possible by floating, Search #RespectTheWater #rnli #survival #floattolive

Here's Gravesend RNLI heading off into the sunset. Gravesend is one of our newest lifeboat stations and one of four lifeboat stations operating on the River Thames – the first stations to specifically cover a river rather than estuarial waters or the sea. Thanks to @girlaboutthames for the great photo. #lifeboats #Gravesend #riverthames #fundraising #rnli #sunset #Kent

An Atlantic 85 inshore lifeboat, B-899 Howard Bell lifeboat is now on service @RNLIHappisburgh replacing thier Atlantic 75 B-778 Joan Mary. When it comes to racing to the scene, our B class Atlantic 85 lifeboat is one of the fastest in the fleet; her top speed is 35 knots powered by two 115hp 4-stroke engines. #fast #knots #speed #lifeboat #atlantic #rnli #rnlilifeboats #happisburgh

Lifeguards at Bantham, Devon, training aboard their inshore rescue boat. If you're heading to the beach as the weather warms, choose one with lifeguards if you can!

Our volunteers give their time to train for tough rescues and carry them out – here’s the crew at Campbeltown aboard their Severn class lifeboat Ernest and Mary Shaw during a night exercise.

What a way to end our photo challenge – with this beautiful picture of a sailboat at low tide in Whitstable. It was taken by Seamus Masters (@glassonion68), and we love the way that the contrast picks out the lines, reflections, silhouettes and shadows.

And so, after over 1,250 posts from you brilliant snappers, the challenge comes to an end. Thank you so much for sharing your shots. Keep up the good work, and remember – take great pics, not big risks!

Last week’s #RNLIMyCoast challenge theme was ‘Play’ – and this was our favourite! It’s a timeless, well-composed shot by @mrs_ktip (Karen Harper), taken of her daughter playing at Goodrington Beach, Devon.
Congratulations Karen, and huge thanks to everyone who has been sharing their pics. This is the last week of the challenge, so now’s the time to pull out all the stops and share your best black and white photos!
