Sea Survival Course

“A one-day course for anyone going to sea, providing an understanding of how to use the safety equipment on board your boat.”

Course Content
A genuine lifesaver: cruising is one of the safest leisure sporting activities, and 99,9% of those afloat will never use their life raft. 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 life raft and assisting others while fully kitted out in wet weather gear and a lifejacket.
Course topics include:

  • life rafts and the equipment they contain
  • survival techniques
  • life raft launching, initial & subsequent actions
  • the design of life jackets
  • medical aspects of sea survival (hypothermia,…)
  • search and rescue techniques
