Re: Bluebird Runs 2019

Well some of the water safety team headed up north into the snow this morning to hone our skills regarding casualty recovery drills, learning from the very best at St Abbs lifeboat :)

Was cold but well worth it !

Re: Donald Campbell's restored Bluebird in museum home row

Sally and I have already been discussing what requirements are needed if Bute were the venue of choice...we have considered adaptations for other venues also.

In any event what ever the venue, most of the water safety team will be on site on days throughout the event in order to continue training and craft familiarisation etc etc.

The list is endless.

Sally has training lined up this month as it happens.


Operating the boat is a serious business which we are taking very seriously indeed 👍

Re: Donald Campbell's restored Bluebird in museum home row

We would know the answer to that if only they would grant us the professional courtesy of actually talking to us.
