#3 Tim’s Sea School – Force 8 in the English Channel ‘Safety on Deck’

 In Black Sheep Refit

This video starts with me sailing in a Force 8 from the Scilly Isles to Weymouth. I then go on to look at the use of safety tethers and their attachment points. It finishes with some problems I’ve noticed with the mounting of liferafts on deck.

Here is a link to the MAIB Safety Bulletin I refer to:
