TRAINING: – “tango-romeo-alpha-india-november-india-november-golf”

10 Oct

Aside from keeping on top of my fitness regime I also have to get to grips with all things nautical.

Last weekend I received training in VHF radio communications for the sea from Mustang Sailing down near Brighton. Hopefully all the time spent during this course teaching us how to broadcast an SOS message will not need to be put into practice but its important to be prepared. I was surprised with how much there was to learn from this course.

Next month 4 of our 6 man team are heading to the Isle of Wight to complete a 5 day RYA qualification to become Day Skippers. Matt and Yaacov are already qualified skippers.  At the end of this intensive course we should all be able to competently navigate our boat using both technology and the stars and we’ll be plotting the fastest possible course across that ocean!!  Last stop on our training tour will be the ‘Sea Survival’ course and then we’re good to row and row and row some more.
