Last nights exercise was once more a game of two halves. To begin with the ALB launched at 1800 with an assessor onboard and ran through a number of CoBT assessments. I understand that these all went well and that many of our crew are now closer to being fully competent in all aspects of their training.

The Alb then came in for a crew change and then went to sea for a second time with a more experienced crew and undertook a night navigation exercise using radar and chart-plotter around East Loe channel. Again this went well and everyone demonstrated that they understood what was being done and achieved all that could be expected of them.

On return, I had my first go at re-housing the boat while using a breasting line which proved to be interesting but ultimately successful! Phew...
