Crews who have undergone the RYA Sea Survival course are more likely to survive a critical situation at sea. This one day course will enable you to experience boarding a liferaft and deploying your lifejacket in the calm waters of a heated pool. Survival techniques will be taught and experienced enabling you to gain confidence in the use of safety equipment on board a sailing yacht.
At the end of the RYA Sea Survival 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.
An important part of the course is a practical session in a swimming pool. Experience first hand the problems of entering an liferaft and assisting others while wearing full wet weather gear and an inflated lifejacket.
