Considering Prerequisites

Tomorrow I have to complete a medical examination before I start my super yacht course in March. Now whilst I am not overly concerned with the medical exam, reading the medical form certainly made me pause and think. Let me share some of the more pertinent sentences.

  • Experience transitions from hot to cold and humid to dry atmospheres.
  • Being exposed to the elements (cold, heat, wind and water) and jump into the sea.
  • Enter dark enclosed spaces, fight small oil and carbonaceous fires.
  • Operate as a member of a team and independently at incidents of uncertain duration.
What a wild place luxury yachts are. A veritable disaster movie waiting to happen. Nice to be prepared for anything. I can only imagine what will be required(blatant pun warning) when space travel starts to take off .
