A large sea kayak fest was being held at Ngatitoa Domain this weekend. Satuday bewteen 1000 and 1200 a group of kayakers worked with our crew to refine our kayker recovery procedures for MR1 and MR2. A combination of moored testing and free floating practise was used to develop and extend our recovery procedures.Recovery of a kayker and kayak, recovery of person in the water, multiple person recovery practises

Aat 1230 MR2 stood by a vessel with engine troubles and then worked through a series of MOSS drills. These are the common at sea actions that need to be confirmed every 6 months to retain crew competency
