A trip out to see what dad gets up to!

Over the Christmas holidays, Gary's son Callum, had a trip out on the Newhaven Lifeboat to see what his dad gets up to in his spare time.

Gary Johnson, the owner of Bluebird Care Lewes is a volunteer crew member on the Newhaven Lifeboat. Over the Christmas holidays, his son Callum, had a trip out on the Newhaven Lifeboat to see what his dad gets up to in his spare time.

Callum is a university student at Brighton and part time carer for Bluebird Care.

The weather was a little choppy but Callum thoroughly enjoyed his trip out even though he got a little damp! He said;
 
Some of the waves were bigger than I was expecting and I certainly got caught out when the seawater sprayed over the fly deck!

It was a great experience and I would like to thank the crew for the opportunity and for letting me get involved. 
Maybe a future crew member in the family!
