First Training Course for MVS Putney


MVS Putney has begun its first year of power boat training with Phil Collins instructing new recruits on the recently acquired ‘Storm’.

The team spent five hours on the water teaching the crew in the basics of MOB, slipping and coming along to moor, stemming the tide and general handling of the boat in preparation for PB2.

HoU Duncan Thomsen, Gigi Goh and Niki Bayard were in attendance for the first session.

The weather was calm, no rain and little river traffic downstream at Albert Bridge where they carried out their MOB training.

Putney has spent a year building up kit, vessels, training and recruits before becoming a fully functional unit.
