RYA / MCA Basic Sea Survival
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.
An important part of the course is a practical session in a swimming pool. Experience firsthand 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
