Courses Delegates Help in a Real Emergency

News
26 Jul 2017

During yesterday’s Proficiency in Survival Craft & Rescue Boat course in Dover Port, there was a report of kayakers in difficulty around the Western Entrance and Admiralty Pier. Course delegates, in our fully enclosed lifeboat, along with a local fishing vessel and a visiting yacht managed to very quickly rescue and recover two people from the water, their two kayaks and assist another still atop his boat. A fourth Kayaker managed to get himself ashore and was assisted by the police.

As our training lifeboat was recovering an upturned kayak and equipment outside of the harbour, Dover RNLI lifeboat was tasked to assist and escort the yacht with her casualty into Dover Marina. All casualties and equipment were returned to the RNLI Lifeboat station which then acted as a base for the emergency services to offer medical care and assessment to those that had been in the water.

The course delegates involved performed admirably putting their training to good use, navigating near persons in the water, close quarters boat handling and towing techniques. Due to the quick actions of the Maritime Skills Academy staff, course delegates and other water users a more tragic outcome was avoided.
