RYA Sea Survival Course
Introduction to the City Sailing RYA/MCA Sea Survival Course
Whats in my raft pack?
Rescue at Sea
How you get rescued by a helecopter at sea or by la lifeboat and how to prepare for a tow.
Fire on board and how to deal with it
Fire is a sailor's greatest fear. We have no way of going to the assembly point and when we get there our raft is not that fie proof.
Paul goes into detail explaining lifejackets and the different types, manual and automatic and what to look out for.
EPIRB and SART
We look at examples of an EPIRB and a SART, please refer to the safety tutorial in the Day Skipper Section.
We look at hydrostatic releases and how they work with the raft.
RNLI Coldwater Shock Video
We love this video and how it clearly explains the effect of coldwater shock. We do strongly recommend everyone not just the dog wears a lifejacket!!!
New RYA Cold Water Casulaty Video
This RYA video explains Cold Water Shock and is the newest in their range of excellent videos with Proffesor Mike Tipton.
Flares and how to use them
Marine flares are a critical safety tool for mariners, providing a distress signal that can be seen from far away.
They are an essential addition to any vessel's safety equipment and can be used to alert other boats and shore-based personnel of an emergency.
Marine flares are easy to use, and can be a lifesaving tool in an emergency situation.
