Training pays off for Girvan Crewmember
Coxwain pass out for Girvan crewmember
Huge congratulations to Alan Jeans who since joining the boat in 2017 has worked exceptionally hard training, not only on the previous Mersey Class lifeboat, but our new Shannon all-weather lifeboat as well.
The culmination of Alan's training took place last night with one of our assessors, where Alan was put through assessment after assessment and was successfully passed out as an All-weather lifeboat coxwain.
Well done Alan for all your effort and hard work.
