About msts blyth
The wind in your hair, the gentle spray of sea water and the unlimited fresh air as you gently manoeuvre our RIB around a pre-planned course sound good to you? Or maybe you prefer the white knuckle ride, smashing over and into waves with a face full of sea water while speeding along 35 knots? Prefer your feet on dry land at all times? While water based training exercises take place out in the bay we also prefer to have a small shore based team monitoring every move to ensure the safety of our teams while performing exercises. With binoculars & marine radio in hand it’s a very important shore based job. For this we will not only provide training but also progress forwards to gaining your marine radio licence.
