Capsize & Cold Water Shock For The Local Rowing Club's

Capsize & Cold Water Shock For The Local Rowing Club's

Whitby RNLI provided some capsize and cold water shock training for our local rowing clubs while delivering some important safety advice.
We involved the young rowers from the Fishermen's and Friendship's clubs in some essential training in the event of one of their vessel's capsizing, also the effects of cold water shock.
Thanks to Whitby Coastguard Rob Parkin who assisted with the training and our volunteer crew who stood by in the inshore lifeboat.
The young rowers did a brilliant job and we hope they enjoyed themselves while taking away some important safety tips for when they are out on the water.
