Safety Boat Training.
Harry, Rob and Nick have completed their safety boat training over evening sessions in August thanks to Paul and Gary at Low Wood Marina. The training included boat skills and retrieving people from the water. (Paul and Rob bravely volunteered to wear dry or wet suits!) Different methods of righting various sizes of sailing boats and wind surfers were practiced including a fully inverted masted dinghy. Also simulated were rescues of kayaks and canoes including an offshore anchoring and rescue in shallow water.
Towing exercises were undertaken and a problem solving multi-capsize scenario
challenged our intrepid safety boaters.
Now we are keen to test our skills with a dragon boat rescue!!!
