Day 16: Help!
Posted: Thu, Jul 24, 2014
Location: Sandy Spit, Green Cay
We woke up this morning to the delicious smell of pancakes. We motored over to Sandy Spit where we passed our search and recovery specialty by finding and raising a weight belt and an anchor off the sea bed. Before lunch we wrote up our emergency action plan for the scenarios that will be sprung on us over the rest of the trip. We had Ramen for lunch. After lunch we began our final session of book work. During our knowledge review the boat was thrown into chaos as we were faced with our first scenario, a panicked diver on the surface with two missing divers somewhere near the boat. Jack led the rescue and the panicked diver was brought back to the boat and search divers and snorkelers were sent out with watchers on the bow and stern. Both divers were brought up — one wasn’t breath and other the surface rescue breathing was started and the other missing diver was brought to the surface by me and Jonny. After the scenario we showered and had dinner. After dinner we had a Lifeworks Forum from Sam about how to turn your dreams into concrete goals. We are all looking forward to the rest of the scenarios.
