Coastal SAR

CAF Cormorant & CCG Cutter
CAF Cormorant & CCG Cutter
We thought we had a week without any CCGA training...
We thought they didnīt offer the Coastal SAR Course anymore...

We thought wrong.

When the guy who looks after training for the CCG and CCGA calls and says "So, what are you doing on Thursday?" you gotta know itīs going to be something interesting ;) It turns out that Kellei and I have been given the chance to attend a Coastal SAR Course he is putting on in Victoria - tomorrow... pack the bags - find a doggie baby sitter and re-schedule life a bit and weīre off...

Coastal SAR is a classroom Course that covers how the SAR system works in great detail - everything from JRCC to Helicopter Opts - what the various groups involved have and how they fit in. Rudimentary info, effectively, that anyone involved in SAR should probably know.

Several friends and colleague had recommended that I try to get my hands on a manual for it - because it was such a good info resource and because the Course isnīt offered any more and so I spoke to Tyler (the aforementioned training guy) About it several weeks ago. Which, I assume, is what prompted the phone call.

I think I mentioned this in a past blog - but itīs kinda fun actually getting a Course from Tyler - as I first met him Back when I was sailing on the Swift - he was stationed on Cortez Is. Back then and would often come out to visit us - that was the first I ever heard of the CCGA - little did I know where that would lead...

So here we are - full circle (he is also the guy teaching the ARTE Course in 2 weeks) yikes and I have my 60tn orals in the middle of all this too - oh ya work - better not forget that either ;)  - my brain is Starting to hurt a bit...
