On Sunday, 6 July the crew of Station 5, Durban, conducted a fitness training scenario with a difference. The crew were initially required to complete a run and swim before being presented with extracting two crew from the dolaces of the North Breakwater. The 'casualties' were placed at the end of the of the breakwater resulting in a 1km walk to the scene. Crew were instructed that the extraction must be done on foot ensuring the casualties had to be carried back the full 1km distance. This would simulate recovering casualties from inaccessible ares where the only option is on foot. Appreciative of the cooler weather, the crew executed both extractions with precision and team-work in difficult terrain.Andre Fletcher took the pictures.Extration-1-HDRExtration-2-HDRExtration-4-HDRExtration-7-HDR
