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: around £130.00

Instructor: to be announced.

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
