Offshore Safety 

Training for recreational and racing skippers and crews who encounter rough weather and problems at sea.

At the end of the course you will have a good knowledge of the safety equipment carried on small boats and the seamanship techniques needed to survive at sea in heavy weather.

The certificate awarded conforms with the eligibility requirements of section 6.01 of the ISAF Special Regulations for category 0, 1 and some category 2 offshore races.

These regulations require a percentage of the crew to have taken personal survival training. Full details of the Special Regulations can be found in the ISAF website on the right.

Course topics include:

  • the one day sea survival course
  • one day of training in seamanship and emergencies, including heavy weather seamanship, weather forecasting, fire fighting and man overboard recovery
