This course is especially useful for cruising and racing skippers together with their crews who expect to encounter heavy weather sailing. It conforms with the eligibility requirements of section 6.01 of the ISAF Special Regulations for category 0, 1 and some category 2 offshore races. You will also require the RYA Sea Survival Course to be awarded an ISAF certificate.
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.
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. Although sailing is one of the safest leisure sporting activities and it is highly unlikely that you will ever need to board a liferaft your chances of survival in the event of an emergency will be greatly increased if you have received training in sea survival and offshore safety.
Our next ISAF course will be held on in April 2013
