RYA Basic Sea Survival
Length- 1 Day Cost- £150 Location- Brightlingsea/Walton
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
Lifejacket types and designs
Medical aspects of Sea Survival
Search and Rescue Techniques
