Sea Safety & Survival Course

Do you have the confidence that your crew could safely carry out an evacuation with less than 60 seconds to prepare? Do you crew on a boat where you are not really sure what questions you should be asking for your safety at sea?

If you are undertaking an offshore passage and feeling overwhelmed by the choices and investment in all of the safety equipment available, then joining a structured Sea Safety & Survival course with a small group of people in a similar situation will have an extremely powerful effect on your confidence and competence for offshore boating adventures.

I was very happy with my experience of the Sea Safety and Survival at Sea course. Neil is a knowledgeable and approachable teacher. He helped to make the content relevant, interesting and memorable. Both the theory component and the practical activities were very useful. I highly recommend this course to anyone who sails on a regular basis, not just for those who are looking to go offshore. Even the most experienced sailors in the room noted that they had learnt valuable information.

They are not only great teachers who are passionate about their subject, but have clearly thought about what works, what doesn't and how to do things better and safer. Really helps you think about how to organise and manage your own boat and crew.
