You may be able to get back to a casualty in the water, but could you get them back onboard?
This course uses a training manikin to demonstrate various methods of recovering a casualty back onto the boat effectively whilst minimising the risk of anyone else going overboard in the process. One of our RYA Instructors will be their to guide you through the process to ensure, should a situation occur for you in the future, you will confidently be able to recover the person. When available, Hamble Lifeboat will also attend demonstrating their side of the recovery procedure.
