A one-day course for anyone going to sea, providing an understanding of how to use the safety equipment on board your boat.

A genuine lifesaver!

Cruising is one of the safest leisure sporting activities, and 99.9% of those afloat will never use their liferaft. However, if you are part of the unlucky 0.1% your chances of survival will be greatly increased if you understand how to use the equipment and how to help yourself.

It is a well-proven fact that, in the event of an emergency at sea, people with training are more likely to survive.

This course is taught with some classroom input, but an important part

of the course is a practical session in a swimming pool. Experience first

hand the problems of entering an uncooperative liferaft and assisting

others while fully kitted out in wet weather gear and a lifejacket.

We will supply a lifejacket and foul-weather gear, however

feel free to use your own equipment to see how it works. 

Course topics include:

  • Liferafts and the equipment they contain

  • Survival Techniques

  • Lifejacket types and designs

  • Medical aspects of Sea Survival

  • Search and Rescue Techniques
