RNLI volunteer Adam Daniel completes his helm training program and has passed out as a helm on Pwllheli’s inshore lifeboat

Becoming a crew member is one big achievement in itself at the RNLI, but after your training as a volunteer crew member, the doors open then to many different roles at your station. Many crew members decide to stay at crew level, many move onto complete a mechanic training program, navigator program, coxswain training program or like Adam, a helm position on the inshore Lifeboat.

Over the last two years, Adam has been assessed on many different aspects of being in charge of a D-Class lifeboat, from managing anchoring, veering, searching for a casualty, towing and many other different aspects that involve being a helm on an inshore lifeboat.

Adam said:
