Basic Sea Survival

Saturday 27 August 2011
Have just taken part in the RYA/MCA Small Craft Basic Sea Survival course at Port Edgar. The course was enthusiastically taught by their chief instructor, Matt Toynbee, and is well worth doing. The course is really comprehensive and it was great to try out the liferaft in the pool. The main thing that struck me is how much effort is required to be the first person into the raft from the sea. If the worst ever happens and we have to abandon I hope we can step from the yacht into the raft.
