Is there a way to encourage more teenagers to be involved in your organisation?

More details would be great!
Hi,

As far as encouraging i give speeches at schools, normally ramble for 15 mins then show them a pic of the main boat and do i traditional Jeremy Clarkson and say "Powwwweer" lol,

Happy to answer any questions.

Matt

Hi Matt,

Have come across Venturers before and always found you guys very professional.

Out of interest, what type / sizes / condition are the Typhoon suits, might well be interested ?

Simon,

Out of interest how had you come across us before? just currious.

Drysuits are boot sizes 6-12 i believe, in good condition and will be tested before selling.

Hi Matt,

What type and colour are the suits please - i.e. are they the commercial WOSS yellow/black suit?

As to how I know Venturers, I work quite often with the MCA around the coast, and also often bring in those little boats with the oil in them to just up the Solent from you! We stood by a few years ago whilst you rescued a motor cruiser, and all were impressed by how well the situation was handled.

Dryduits are navy blue and black,

Any idea what motor cruiser rescue it was, i.e aground, sinking etc?
