May I ask what VHF channel we should be using for between our safety boat and instructors?

Is channel 9 ok for this type of work?
Channels 6, 8, 72 and 77 are designated for routine ship to ship communication in the UK

I think you can also use 09 for intership if you want, but it is best to use one from Martini's list as they are dedicated for intership only, whereas 09 is also a port operations channel.

Most French harbours use 09 not sure if it gets much use in the UK.

Correction quick search here reveals that 08, 09, and 72 could be in regular use in the Thames area

ps. the link is a quite handy pdf list of known UK base stations and their channels

Thanks for the info.

Did you point out the three about as they should be avoided or used?

Any of the 4 I first mentioned can be used unless theyre already being used in your area. Once youve had the radios for a while keeping a listening watch (maybe in a scan mode), you'll soon figure out which is has the least traffic and you can designate that one for your activities.
