These rigorous inspections cover all safety aspects of the catamaran, including the regular maintenance of life saving equipment onboard and general operating systems of the vessel at sea.

He indicates the positions of all life-saving equipment and explains procedures for incidents at sea, including the correct donning of lifejackets if required (which has never before been necessary).
