Rescue at Sea: Heaving lines and Life Rings

Heaving Stick

Learn about the traditional methods of a ship to ship rescue and man-overboard drills. Groups will learn about the process of using heaving lines and life rings, and be able to put their skills to the test on a customized outdoor activity station. Fun for the whole family!

There will be a 2nd session of this demonstration from 2:30-4:00pm today.
