Blue Spirit Involved in Rescue

Well done to Nigel Verrill and his crew for their prompt and professional action.  What they did probably saved the life of a man in a kayak who was in the water.  He was recovered on board and they quickly noticed that he was disorientated, falling asleep and vomiting and clearly suffering from hypothermia.  they alerted the coastguard who dispatched a helicopter to hi line transfer him off the vessel and remove him to hospital.

It’s always good to know that the teaching we give to students is relevant and useful and Nigel had only just completed his Day Skipper practical and this was his first charter in fact the last post here included him with his new certificate.  An excellent and professional bit of action and a big well done to all involved.

 

You may even be able to see a short video of the casualty departing below.
