We booked the Porirua pool for a practical session with the crew, use and limitations of life jackets and use of the liferaft.

  • Solid life jackets and buoyancy aids (buoyancy aids are just that) the life jacket keeps you stable in the water

  • Use of the HELP, huddle and crocodile survival support systems

  • Deploying, attaching, entering and crew positions within a liferaft.

13 crew pased the module and are ready for adverse events at sea.
