A week of training!!

So it's 11am ish on Friday and I have completed my week of Water Survival and Safety training.

It was a such a fun week! Over the 5 days our class tested our skills in Fire Fighting, boarding and launching life boats. Water survival after an abandon ship and finally helicopter escape training.

This morning we met in the pool bright and early to test our skills. I was excited for the challenge but would be lying if the thought of being dunked in an enclosed Helo Simulator didn't freak me out.

I have a video that I stole from youtube to give you all an overview of what we went through. We are not allowed to take photos throughout the class although I know many of you would have paid good money to see my all done up in my survival gear.

My only disclaimer is for my mom...

Mom DO NOT WATCH THIS!! I am not kidding! They kick it off by showing a Helo crash and let's be honest you are not watching that!!.....

For the rest of you land lovers, here is your chance to see what type of training us pirates go through to prepare. The below link will take you to YouTube and it is about 4 minutes long. Enjoy!!

I am off to sit by the hotel pool which I am assuming will be free of people trying to chuck me out of life boats or Helo Simulators!
