Today, we went out onto the North Sea for a day of maritime training, a course how to rescue, survive and help in the case of being lost at sea, or going overboard from a ship at high sea. The course was extremely valuable towards my long-term goal of being able to do clean-ups of North Sea shipwrecks from ghost nets , abandoned fishing nets which harm marine life.
We went out this morning for two hours of class-room training and then boarded a ship and went out to sea, where we learned how to use flares, smoking pots, floats and various means to rescue men over board and victims of drowning.
This training was organized by
Get Wet . I can highly recommend it.
