Back to basics

Last night's training was "back to basics" after the busy summer we picked back up on our rope work. Especially for Nick and Dee, it was hold fasts (our anchor points) and then the basic cliff top set up.

In the Coastguard world of rope work there are 4 levels of competencies. Awareness - the very basic understanding of the equipment: The Operator - team members operating the equipment on the top of the cliff: The Technician the person going over the cliff and finally the OIC or Officer in Charge.
