RYA Training - Sea Survival Course
A one day course for anyone going to sea, providing an understanding of how to use the safety equipment aboard your yacht or vessel. A genuine Life-Saver.
Duration: 1 Day
Typical cost: £65.00
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.
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.
Course topics include:
- Liferafts and the equipment they contain
- Survival techniques
- The design of lifejackets
- Medical aspects of sea survival
- Search and rescue techniques
