The Cayman Islands Shipping Registry would like to announce that Corrigenda No.2 to the Red Ensign Group (REG) Yacht Code has now been published on the Groups webs site and can be accessed from the Red Ensign Group website (www.redensigngroup.org/publications/)
The Corrigenda has been drafted following the receipt of extensive stakeholder feedback, discussion during the Red Ensign Group Yacht Surveyors Meetings and an Industry engagement exercise / consultation process involving Designers, Shipyards, Management Companies and Classification Societies that lasted some three months.
There is quite a lot of information regarding Common Annexes, Annex H. Items include the tern helideck replaced by shipboard heliport.
Great to see DOC9261 mentioned in support of Annex 14 Vol II and updated information regarding fire fighting equipment and refueling systems.
QA Hospital, Portsmouth
Our local hospital, we are always keen to support them in anyway we can. This tasking was the 24 month CAP1264 compliance review. As usual the team were so supportive. This is our fifth certified hospital helipad in the UK.
Redditch Hospital Study
Feasibility study at the Redditch Hospital, great little site which will be enhanced thanks to the generosity of the HELP Charity. We looked at three options for the site, found and mounded and raised.
Worcester Royal Hospital
Representing CAAI, we conducted a feasibility study at the Worcester Royal Hospital. They are currently into a huge regeneration package which will include relocating the old HLS to a new site outside the emergency Department. Great team and really enjoyed the technical challenges of the new location.
Royal London Helipad
We had the wonderful opportunity to visit the Royal London Hospital in early November to discuss inspection and certification process. What a wonderful place, great to be on a hospital heliport that employs a dedicated fire and response team. Awesome facilities and to top it off, probably one of the best views in London! Thank you Team RLH!
Great work Team Vega and GSP Offshore
So proud to work with Vega and GSP Offshore recently updating the helideck teams on regulatory compliance. Usually this training would take place face to face, however due to travel and Covid restriction we delivered via Zoom to two offshore platforms and the onshore HQ. Great fun, great audience.

Campbeltown Helipad Progress
After almost 2 years of work and co-ordination between various agencies, funding has been approved for the new Campbeltown Helipad which will see a new helipad installation in support of the Campbeltown and surrounding areas community. It means the hospital will now have a 24/7 helipad whereas previously helicopters had to land at the local airport during the hours of darkness.
This Safety Directive/Operational Directive replaces and revokes SD 2019/002 and is made in the interests of safety of operations to offshore locations (helidecks) for the reasons set out in Chapters 10 and 14 of CAP 1145.
