WORLD SAILING OFFSHORE SAFETY
Crews competing in offshore and long distance races are required to have attended a World Sailing Offshore Safety Course within the last 5 years. It is a 2 day course covering care & maintenance of safety equipment, storm sails, damage control, crew routines, man overboard prevention & recovery, giving assistance to other crafts, SAR organisation and methods, practical fire precautions & fire fighting and distress alerting. Some members of the crew may also be required to complete a first aid course too.
For groups of 6 or more, courses can be arranged at a date and venue to suit and the training can be tailored to your group. During 2014 SeaRegs (our parent company) worked alongside Ocean Safety to provide Advanced Survival training for the Volvo Ocean Race teams, whilst we can’t always promise an environmental pool with waves, spray and blackout or dressing up as fireman we ill endeavour to make the training as realistic as possible.
