Crew split into 3 groups to do a practical SAR communications exercise after last weeks theory.

One group went to take Pelorus out to act as "lost" boat - they had issues with their GPS and radios (hand held) so were unable to complete the exercise.

TPR started with bumps & grinds in the marina, before heading out to do some boat handling exercises.  While out at sea, for exercise TPR got base to turn off TracPlus - radioed in they were "lost" and gave basic bearings for IMT team to plot where they are.

IMT team in base did radio work between boats while they were out.
