25 pax raft recovered in 15-20 m/s winds
This was our second attempt to lift an empty 25 pax raft in a fresh south westerly wind, 15-20 m/s, force 8, waves of around 3 m and about zero degrees celsius, using the crane kindly loaned to us by MMT. This time we were able to take the lifting line to the raft with a Rescuerunner. The crane could then pull the raft closer and finally lift it onboard. The raft was stripped of sea anchors from a previous test.
The Rescue Helicopter Lifeguard 901 was kind enough to document the trial from the air.
