Safety demonstrations and how to use a sextant

We were treated to full air/sea rescue demonstration in the harbour followed by a pool session of inflating and climbing into a life raft. The children all loved watching the helicopter dropping a person onto a yacht and seeing flares let off.

Also they all got to have fun climbing in and jumping out of a life raft in the pool. Great fun on a sunny day. Let’s hope we never have to do this though!

Then it was time for Paul and I to learn how to set up a sextant and take readings for navigation. Something we hope to be expert in by the time we arrive in St. Lucia. Although we hope the GPS continues to work and no one turns any of the satellites off!!
