Training Exercise Solent

Went out for a little play in the solent yesterday and managed to get a little training session in with the Coastguard Helicopter Mike Uniform. Maybe one of the last opportunities to do it with the old Sea kings as they are being replaced very very soon.

Was great out there yesterday not too bumpy and quite warm as well.

It was quite terrifying having the helicopter about 10ft above the boat! The Guardian kept coming into my mind. We should have some video shortly....
