RYA Sea Survival Course Discounted Rate

RYA Sea Survival Course

Sunday 12th October 2014

Instructor: Paul Bew RYA Yacht Master Instructor and Examiner

It is a well-proven fact that in the event of an emergency at sea, people who have received training are more likely to survive. The purpose of this course is to give a person who goes to sea in small commercial motor/sailing vessels the basic knowledge and practical experience of personal survival principles and techniques. You will learn about preparation for survival, lifejackets, search & rescue. You will also join a practical session in a swimming pool with a life raft. This course is a must for everyone who sails.

Would you know what to do if the unthinkable happens?

Prerequisites: None

Discounted Price: GBP 85.00

Price Includes: Course Notes RYA Books and Certificates

Price Excludes: Waterproofs (Wet Weather Gear can be hired for £10)

Please bring: The course consists of tuition at DSWC with a swimming pool session at St Georges Pool, Shadwell, Canary Wharf. You will need a change of clothes, waterproofs that you normally use while sailing (or hire these) as well as your normal lifejacket. If you have an automatic lifejacket unscrew the cylinder and manually inflate for the pool session and replace the cylinder later. We do urge you to empty ALL of your pockets as the pool filters are quite sensitive.
