My trip on the Blue Peter Lifeboat

September 20, 2009

Charterhouse returns Committee members Coxswain Paul Butler and ‘Doc’ Davies arranged a trip out in Fishguard Bay for me on Wednesday. It was a practice night and was very interesting as one of the female crew members was being assessed for her ability at the helm and at the emergency rudder control. She was impressive!.

I managed to survive 90 minutes [on board] in a less than calm sea!

Within three months I now have been to sea [and at the wheel] on the Charterhouse and Blue Peter!

Thank you.

A special ‘Thank you’ to the TV programme Blue Peter and all the children who raised funds for Fishguard’s Lifeboat named after the programme!

Thanks to Johnny Morris for photos.
