Students participating in the course

The Gijón Marina, together with the Roxu Machinery School, carried out a simulation exercise this Friday. Eleven students, participants in the first course to obtain a professional certification for boats and jet skis, executed a series of maneuvers with semi-rigid boats and jet skis with rescue platforms (stretchers).

They carried out several techniques for approaching an unconscious person, in an emergency situation in the aquatic environment, and later rescuing him.
