RYA Active Marina Programme Starts

February 12, 2013

This weekend saw the first of the 2013 RYA Active Marina events at Whitehaven Marina.

The free VHF Workshop held in association with Bay Sea School was attended by 14 Whitehaven berth holders who also enjoyed refreshments provided by the marina!

Using four training radios, all attendees  were able to practice sending distress alerts and Mayday calls.

Other subjects covered included:

  • Crew safety brief (using VHF radio in distress)
  • DSC distress alert
  • Voice Mayday (new procedure)
  • VHF – GPS interface

Thanks go to John Parlane of Bay Sea School, for organising and hosting the event.
