For those trainee mates who are not Powerboat Level 2 qualified yet, we will be able to offer informal training and practising in the tender on the following Thursday mornings: 23rd March, 30th March, 6th April and 13th April. This is the opportunity for those who have not operated the tender yet, or only used it when tethered to Albion, to brush up their skills prior to the charter season. There will be additional training later this year but you should be experienced and confident in all aspects of the tender use prior to that date. If you cannot make it on the above dates, contact Martin Hills to see if another date can be arranged.
