Product Information

This book is the official text for the RYA Basic Sea Survival Course and the RYA/ISAF Offshore Safety Course and supports ISAF approved Offshore Personal Survival courses. It also highlights the importance of having the correct safety equipment and will also give you the knowledge of how and when to use it, making it invaluable for anyone who takes a boat offshore for racing or cruising.

This new edition has also been updated to include the syllabus for the ISAF Offshore Personal Survival Course and the latest information on sea survival. It is divided into two parts so that it more closely matches the syllabi of the two courses and supports other ISAF approved Offshore Personal Survival courses. Chapters include:

  • Before you leave
  • Calling for Help
  • Understanding Weather
  • MOB Prevention
  • Fire Control

This book is written by Keith Colwell who works at the RNLI as a Community Incident Reduction Manager, managing a large team of volunteer safety advisers, who provide a safety advice service to the both the boating and general public. Keith is an RYA Yachtmaster, an RYA Powerboat Instructor, a SRC instructor/assessor and RYA and STCW’95 Sea Survival Instructor.
