I'd love to - maybe age would be a problem being only 18
why? daughter joined as l/boat crew at 17, awlb navigator at 18, while at university. Then left uk for a couple of years to skipper a 50ft twin jet drive fast catamaran in holland and sailed there with the KNRM (dutch l/b service)on one of their 62ft twin 1k hp jet drive ribs. Now back, but elsewhere, in the uk with her boat and sailing with a uk lifeboat. But her dad is still here as a member of a very busy coastguard rescue team for nigh on 30 years, 3 jobs last sunday-one sorted from our ribs cos we were there on scene already, but the others going on to the early hours-again!
