Atlantic Pacific Summer School

Atlantic Pacific Summer School

What an amazing week for the start of the Atlantic Pacific Summer School here at UWC Atlantic College.

The residential course features daily seagoing from the College’s own slipway, comprehensive land-based theory sessions and First Aid scenarios. The aim of the course is to equip its participants with the rescue skills necessary to operate as Atlantic Pacific Crew Members.

Many of the previous participants from the Summer School have been deployed to active service: several have assisted with the refugee crisis in Greece, others have crewed offshore vessels in the central Mediterranean and five recent graduates have helped establish a lifeboat station in northern Japan.

An Atlantic Pacific Summer School will be held annually at UWC Atlantic College.

‘From the person who donated £20, to the person who donated £2000 - thank you. I am extremely grateful and indebted… I will do everything in my power to make sure that the contribution made is going to mean something more…’
