Road Trip to NMCI

21 08 2013

It was a lovely afternoon for a bus trip down to Ringaskiddy to see the innovative technology used in the National Maritime College of Ireland.  The teenagers were taken on a tour of the facilities including all of the machinery, workshops and the impressive survival pool.

Luckily, due to the beautiful weather, local company Skytec Ireland  were out in the sun operating their state-of-the-art unmanned aircraft to take aerial digital shots of the area.

To finish the visit to the innovative campus, the group were treated to a session in the impressive simulator which simulates a variety of situations that may be encountered while working at sea.  An afternoon spent sailing around Sydney harbour without the 10 hour flight first, what more could you ask for!
