Cost: £650 per person, a 20% deposit is payable at the time of booking unless it is within 40 days of the course start in which case full payment will be required. At the successful completion of the five day course you will be awarded certificates for: • RYA First Aid • RYA Sea Survival • VHF SRC Marine Radio Operator’s • RYA Essential Navigation What is included? All course materials are included. Tea, coffee, soft drinks, biscuits and other refreshments will be available all day. Food and accommodation is not included, however there are plenty of places to eat and stay locally. What do I need to bring? Note book, pen and pencil and a passport size photo for your VHF SRC. On the day of your sea survival course you will need clothing to wear in the pool, shorts and t-shirt will be perfect. After class sessions: The after-class sessions are included in the cost of the course. They are not mandatory to pass, but we feel it is a great way to gain the best experience possible from this course. The extra sessions can be tailored to the course candidate’s needs. We can organise all kinds of evening sessions such as (but not limited to) talks from ocean rowers about their experience, EPIRB/ PLB registration, more on SSR and MMSI, boat design and selection, rowing technique. These sessions generally start at 4.30pm after a tea break at the end of the course, but can be moved to the evening to fit in with teams requirements. The final evening will be a team meal, venue to be confirmed at the start of your course. This is not included in the price and is not compulsory but we think this as a great way to finish the week. Location: Aurora Sea School, Rice and Cole Boatyard, Sea End Boathouse, Burnham on Crouch, Essex, CM0 8AN. The classroom is located on the first floor and is accessed via a metal external staircase right opposite the parking. Please contact us if you are likely to need assistance with the stairs. Parking is available on site just inside the main gates on the left.
