Distress Signals, Including Opportunity to Use Flares
Published on: 5/11/2019
Saturday 27 July RRYC Club House. Distressed! Time to be seen and make some noise. We will have a short session discussing distress signals, their use and relative effectiveness. Quentin Haynie from Smith Point Rescue will be joining us to share some of his experiences and lessons learnt. We will take the opportunity to demonstrate how visible some distress signals are. The fun part of the morning will be firing flares into Carters Creek, something everyone should have the opportunity to practice in case you ever need it for real!
