Safety and Sea Survival

This course intends to provide all persons going to sea with skills and essential knowledge that will maximise their chances of survival in water or liferafts following a man overboard situation or vessel abandonment; and familiarise sailors with the latest personal and vessel safety equipment, its purpose, deployment, and most effective use; and present and discuss prevention and coping strategies for incidents and emergencies at sea.

In completing the course, participants will receive a Course Completion Certificate that satisfies the requirements for most Category 0, 1 and 2 races. With a 5 year validity the certificate can be updated by attending a refresher course.

The RYCT as an Australian Sailing Discover Sailing Centre and has entered in a partnership with Tasman Adventures to conduct this course.
