The water is loverly this time of the year or we could leave until february and get our very own Paramedic(retired) to practice his lifesaving skills on a Hypothermia Patient

It was two engines. However both were recovered quickly and after a squirt of WD40, made a speedy recovery.

I did my Rescue Boat ticket in March and I found the water to be just that little bit cooler than February, and much more to my taste.

You should have had a bucket on the other side to catch yours

Have been in touch with an experienced & respected First Aid at Sea Instructor who is happy to work with a group of us in 2007 to knock some sense into us.

Will get a few dates from people over the next week's Christmas meets.
If any other Instructors out there have a favourite topic they could offer a refresher on (& a good price) to a group in the Solent area, please pm or post!
