      Ha ha luckily no not at sea. We have to do a lot of training on emergency situations though, and some of this involves going to a pool and pretending to go overboard, then being rescued or rescuing others.

      I’m glad we did this in a pool rather than doing it for real somewhere cold and rough like the Southern Ocean!
