  • What did everyone think of STC openday

    I attended the openday at MSTC today and just wondered if anyone else went and what they thought.

    I was there too!

    I thought the cadets there were really helpful actually, very informative!

    My only problem was getting lost trying to find the place! I got to STC itself and they had ran out of the little 'route' maps they had to get to the safety centre.

    All-in-all a good open day.

                    Well the pool side of it , Formations in the water . jumping in to the water from the black box . climbing into life rafts , and how to manouver them with the paddles , sea anchor etc.

                    Or just the bit at the end where you Have the full effects , water , waves etc and have to get in the life raft and save the person.

                            Brimbo - I filmed some of the sea survival. Can I put it on youtube?

                            For those that met me, I hope I convinced you all to study ETO
