The way I was looking at it was all club dive boats are used as safety boats in one form or another.
We have over the last few years been called upon by the police & coastguard to assist when someone was threatening to jump off Seaford Head. We have also rescued other boats in difficulty & assisted the life boat at Selsey when someone ran aground, not to mention the kids that have drifted out on inflatable toys.
I’m sure we are not the only club to have had these situations, therefore I thing they should pay us every time we go out
(now wouldn’t that be nice?)
