RNLI training and assessments

Bitter cold does not deter those keen to progress

Dave Needham, south-east trainer and assessor came to the station on Monday and worked with crew who were ready for modules to be passed. Congratulations to Rob Jennings who has completed his helm plan and now moves forward to a mock pass-out and final pass-out. Once these take place in the new year, we look forward to him joining the other helms at the station. Luke Bishop passed his International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea (IRPCS) module and Lucy Green passed Locate and Assist a Casualty.

For these assessments to take place a team is required, a launching authority and both shore and boat crew. The team is very supportive of those taking assessments and turn out willingly thus enabling our station at Rye Harbour to maintain their high standard of core skills and produce fully qualified crew.

Dave said as he left: “Another great session where it is obvious that the crew have put in many hours of training and bookwork prior to my visit. Always a great welcome at the harbour and good to see people progressing to full crew and helm.”

If you want to be a part of this dedicated team of volunteers come down to the station on a Sunday from 10am to 12 noon or Monday 6:30pm-8:30pm, meet some of the crew and find out why it is such a great team belong to.
