The events take place very much like a swimming race. Everyone starts on a whistle then the first person to finish wins. It is a simple as that really.
Below is a list of the events we do, have look and see what you think of them. CLick on an individual link for more details.
|Line Throw||Competitors coil and throw a rope to a simulated casualty, then pull them to safety as fast as they can.|
|Manikin Carry||The carry events focus on the lifesaving skill of the contact rescue, modified to form a competitive event. In carry events, the competitor lugs a full 8.5stone manikin over a set distance usually having swum the same distance to reach it.|
