The Yachting Australia Safety and Sea Survival Course was developed following the fatalities of the 1998 Sydney to Hobart Race.
This course is an essential learning forum for anyone who ever takes to the sea in a sailing or motor yacht either professionally or recreationally.
The intensive two day course aims to deliver up-to-date information and current techniques in an interactive and safe learning environment.
The course includes a practical life raft exercise where candidates will become familiar with the deployment and use of a life raft and flare detonation, fire extinguishing in a controlled environment and theory sessions which should greatly enhance the chances of survival in the event of an emergency at sea.
The certificate awarded conforms with the eligibility requirements of section 6.01 of the ISAF Special Regulations for category 0, 1 and some category 2 offshore races.
Safety & Sea Survival Courses are conducted here at RFBYC by Yachting Western Australia.
