|This is the end where the whisky is kept!|
|Like my new drysuit?|
We were lucky enough to have another practise session with Kinghorn lifeboat recently. First time, the weather was lovely and calm, but as it was evening, we had a dimming light to work with.
|Times we could use a kayak trolley like that!|
|Still looking lovely and flat|
We had a rescue with an unconscious paddler. With the swell we were now in, it made it a lot harder and probably more realistic. Our unconscious paddler, unsurprisingly Dan again, is no wee dainty thing! This alone can cause problems, getting him out the boat without snapping his legs! However after a few bits of discussion and suggestions, it was successful.

We then had a rafted rescue with Niall lounging along our boats having "lost" his.Another couple of rescues and it was time to head back for lunch and a bit of a debrief, what went well, what we could try next time, etc.
A really good and interesting mornings paddling and looking forward to our next session with the lifeboat - so long as it's only practising!
