First session of this advanced helm training program that is being run by one of our masters to train up a group of dedicated helmspeople that we can put on the helm of either vessel and know that they are able to perform helming duties while on a rescue or training with a high level of accuracy and safety.

Practising and perfecting the procedure for coming alongside/berthing at the fuel berth. Helmsperson must approach at a suitable angle, allowing for the drift of the wind, use the engines to stop the vessel and pull the stern onto the jetty in one movement without bouncing or rubbing.
