Excellent video and a brave crew member
Sorry to drag this back up Matt but please can you put this picture up as I cant find it on mine and I was only sent 5 posters (POWERBOATING, YOUTH SAILING, NATIONAL SAILING SCHEME,YACHTMASTER SAILING AND YACHTMASTER POWER) so maybe I am missing one. Also where it is written , I have just had RTC inspection and mentioned it to the Inspector he has no knowledge of this instruction. I also phoned RLSS UK
to see if they had heard of it and then finally the RYA and they have not heard of this practice either.We don't use BA's only lifejackets on all our courses ie Rescue Boat RLSS or Safety Boat RYA so that is why i was a bit confused .

Also produced were some rather snazzy white and blue RYA stickers entitled 'guidelines for safety boat users' which are prominently displayed on a number of club safety craft which if i remember correctly, the sentiment is also expressed on. It is also taken verbatim from Di Tillsley's (RTE inspector) advice from an inspection which I was present at about 18 months ago and raised this specific issue.
