Sunny Sunday morning

In complete contrast to today's weather, yesterday mornings exercise was a very pleasant affair with a gentle swell, little breeze and clear skies.

With an experienced crew of Martin, myself, Steve, Skid, Gav, Dan, James and Matt onboard we ran straight through the whole sequence of seamanship manoeuvres (anchoring, man-overboard, emergency steering, drogue, coming alongside and salvage pump)at the same time as getting Gav and Steve to spend some time helming and Dan and Skid some time navigating.

All went well and a very profitable 2 hours were spent reassuring ourselves that our kit functions well and we know our stuff.
