A visit from the RAF

RAF chopper

These eye catching pictures popped up on Sea Change’s newsfeed within ‘Facebook’ so of course I had to find out more from Hilary Halajko, First Mate and writer of “Cambria Watch” pieces for us. Hilary says “we were sailing from Harwich and the air sea rescue helicopter asked if they could do a practice and send the winch man down to our deck. it was great fun and we were very impressed with their amazing accuracy. Then when the winch man removed his helmet he turned out to be very handsome but like policeman these days looked far too young for such responsibilities!!!” Manna from Heaven, Hilary?
