RYA/ISAF Offshore Safety Course
Duration: 1 day
Previous Experience Required: None
Course Overview: A hands on course designed to provide the skills and knowledge needed to handle offshore emergencies
RYA/ISAF Offshore Safety Course £110
Whilst this can be taken as a stand alone course in order to issue the full ISAF certificate candidates are also required to attend RYA Sea Survival Cost: £110
Total Package: (2 days) £220
The RYA/ISAF Offshore Safety course equips both racers and cruisers with the skills and knowledge necessary to both prevent and deal with emergencies offshore. Whilst this course satisfies the training requirements for many offshore races it is equally suited to those who undertake blue water cruises and may be beyond immediate help.
In order to obtain the full ISAF Offshore Safety Certification students will need to complete both this course and the one day RYA Sea Survival course. We would also strongly recommend attending the one day RYA First Aid course and whilst this is not a requirement for the actual ISAF certificate it is required to be held by a certain number of crew on some races.
The course satisfies the training required by ISAF Offshore Special Regulations 6.01 for category 0, 1 and some category 2 offshore races.
The RYA/ISAF Offshore Safety Course is split between both theoretical and practical hands on training.
Subjects covered include;
• Care & Maintenance of Safety Equipment
• Storm Sails
• Damage Control
• Crew Routines
• Man Overboard Prevention and Recovery
• Giving Assistance to other craft
• SAR Organisation and Methods
• Practical Fire Precautions and Fire Fighting
• Distress Alerting and Survivor Location Aids
At Hamble we don't believe you can learn by just sitting in front of a whiteboard so during the day there will be a chance to let off flares, set off fire extinguishers, set up a storm jib and experiment with recovering a man back onboard from the dockside.
