The second day of the Offshore Safety Course (in conjunction with the RYA Sea Survival) will equip you with an understanding of techniques for dealing with heaving weather along with skills to deal with on board damage and emergencies. It includes weather forecasting, firefighting and man over board recovery.
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.
