For example, we were given rescue paddleboard training in the sea. As well as this, there was a theoretical side to the clubs training and for the first half hour of each Thursday session we learnt about lifesaving and first aid. I was also a member at North Haven Yacht club in Sandbanks with my family for a few years, in which I spent some time on the water and had experience with driving a RIB.
