Sea Survival

We had a fabulous weekend in Port Solent on a dedicated Bella sea survival training weekend which was hosted by Vortex. Great combination of Classroom theory and practicals including fire fighting, flares,MOB recovery and the pool excercise. For the pool we used the winsdom of our skipper, Mike, to base it in a Lido as opposed to a noce warm heated pool. It was freeznig, (at least to start with) so much so that the instructor wouldnt let us jump in until we had become used to the temperature. We took Bella along as both part of the training and as accomadation. The sail there and back was fabulous particularly the run back with SE winds, flat seas and loads of sun, despite a 21.00 arrival back on a Sundau evening the crew could have comfortably carried on sailing.
