Crew Training Saturday Morning with MHA

The Maritime Heritage Alliance sponsored a crew training session on fire fighting and signal flares this morning.   Taking part were the crews of Madeline, Welcome, Champion, Inland Seas and Manitou
This is a SOLAS grade red hand held flare, suitable for day or night use

A similar, but not SOLAS, flare.  Note the difference in intensity
