Crew Overboard Training
A person going overboard is understandably one of the most significant causes of anxiety for people heading out on the water. 

Above & Beyond Boating are well known locally and internationally for thinking outside the box whilst raising safety standards everywhere.

We will bring you up to date with the latest  advances in overboard (MOB) technology, from modern life jackets and harness lines, to lights, beacons and recovery aids.

Created by
Above & Beyond Boating
With over 20 years of experience teaching boating, we have seen what works and have created the safety and sea survival e-learning course to provide you with a clear pathway to ensure that you don't just feel prepared that you are prepared.

World Sailing is the global governing body for the sport of sailing. It represents Member National Authorities (MNAs) from 140 countries, including Australia and New Zealand.

The World Sailing Offshore Special Regulations specifically advise that: "at least annually the crews shall practice the drills for crew-overboard recovery and abandonment of vessel."

This internationally recognised online training course will teach offshore personal survival techniques, as outlined by World Sailing.

Fundamental safety principles that are often overlooked...
Unfortunately, many people waste time and money by overlooking fundamental safety principles. No matter how long or short a time you have been boating, these are crucial elements that will make your boat safer and, therefore, also your boating more enjoyable.
Smart skippers and boat owners take the time to plan a safety brief that hits home the vital information to their crew in a clear format without horror stories. We will show you how to do this.

When this is practised on the water, the issues of deploying safety equipment, safely organising and control the deckwork, whilst spotting the person, managing the engine and preparing for a recovery have been ironed out, and the boat exercise goes very well.

If you spend enough time at sea, accidents will happen. It is time to take action and work out a plan that will work on your boat with your crew so that you will all perform in an emergency.
