Did you know that there was an RNLI Office in Perth ? Not just any office but the Scottish Headquarters? Well I didn’t so I was really surprised when I turned up for a SRC (Short Range Radio Course) and found it to be in the RNLI offices, as I walked through the doors I was assured a quality experience.
So what was the course like, lots of practice on the radio, calling the Coast Guard who got fed up with our sinking yachts and a good insite into DSC, how to use it and some really useful suggestions.
Anyway the instructor, Rick Raeburn, will be running these courses regularly so there is ample opportunity to attend if anyone else is interested.
