Favorite thing with SAR is: Navigating and instructing fellow crew members on using Charts and the various ways to Navigate. Also I love BBQ covers after spending so much time under one to practice navigating in Restricted Visibility
Most memorable thing is: To numerous to contemplate but I would say it’s being with such a diverse group of crewmembers and enjoying the time with them all. Also with all the time and training the Coxswains put in so I could go to RHIOT (and not being called Pops by the other trainees) and also getting to CLll-B to become a Coxswain in such a short time.
Total Class Sessions: 94 (207 hours)

Quote: “Nothing better than being out in an open RHIB in the middle of the winter with high seas and the rain pelting down on you. But seriously it’s the close bond I have come to have with my SAR team members is truly a gift.”
