Chris Darch and Peter Tse ran a session comprising tossing lines from TPR (moored alongside) to Pelorus (under way).Crew then tied on a towline and took turns to let it out and hold (on post) against Pelorus slowly going astern. Crew then rafted Pelorus alongside TPR twice, switching between stern ropes and bow ropes. Roy Quinn acted as safety officer and Neil Cornwell helped to helm Pelorus with Chris Darch as Skipper. This followed theoretical training last Thursday night. Next step is towing/rafting training at sea.
