Safety Boat Refresher
At the beginning of the month we held a refresher course for safety boat helms.
The course was held over a morning or afternoon and a total of 31 people attended. The course covered launching and recovering the safety boat; recovery of unconscious casualty; assisting helms to right their boat and how to prioritise assistance on very windy days. In the New Year you will also see a traffic light system being used to help members make informed decisions about sailing conditions.
Members who took part said it was a useful course.
‘Useful hands on practise’ Carl Jones
‘Interesting course which promoted debate’ Darryl Riley
‘A very useful refresher course, which has reinforced the level 2 powerboat.’ Gareth Jones
