6/12/2011 – Flood Rescue Training

After students completed the mandatory prerequisite of a swim test,  it was time for the training to begin.

Saturday and Sunday saw the floodies under assessment conduct flood rescue theory and land based practicals. This included reliving their childhood, using bathtime boats to practice the rules of the water.

Once this was mastered the crews set out for Guildford on Monday. The beautiful weather helped add to a successful day!

But the weather wasn’t as good on Tuesday when we had to recover the vessels early after a storm front started to move in on us out on Melville waters. An early finish, which meant the assessments were incomplete. But an excuse to take the boats back out on the water another…… warmer day!
