Some of you may be aware that LDYC has recently purchased another dedicated safety boat to supplement the rubber duck currently in use. In order to ensure that this asset is utilized properly, the intention is to generate a pool of trained and ‘certificated’ club members who will support Simon as and when required, to provide rescue reaction in the event of an emergency, or for planned regatta duty.
We request that club members who are interested in participating and are in possession of a valid skippers licence, please sign up with Annetjie at the office on 016 371 1393.
It will mean partaking in theoretical and practical training (details of which are still to be formulated) and a commitment to duties on a rotational basis. Members with caravan sites are obviously in a better position to participate, and we hope you won’t turn down the opportunity to volunteer.
