24 Apr 2019CS&PF 2019 Observer Meetings

Two dates for observer training days - May 19 & June 2 - at Dover Lifeboat Station at 13:30

The CS&PF are holding two Observer Training Sessions for CS&PF observers (and those who are interested in registering) on Sunday May 19 & June 2 at 13:30 in the Dover Lifeboat Station in Dover.

The same material will be covered in both sessions, so please join the one that suits you best.

We will give advise about relay changeovers, writing the observer reports, recording start/finish times, timing the swims and texting information for the website at the start and finish of swims.

Dover Lifeboat Station is situated in Dover’s Western Harbour on the Crosswall Quay, Union St, Dover CT17 9BN

Pilots are also invited to attend. This is a great opportunity for pilots to meet and talk to the observers.

If you are planning to attend please email observer.liaison@cspf.co.uk including which date you plan to attend to ensure we have sufficient seating and tea & coffee.

See you there!
