You will join a practical session in a heated swimming pool. You will then practice raft drills and survival techniques as well as experience why a lifejacket needs to be fitted properly.  This course is a must for everyone who sails or goes to sea.

The Course 

We will explain life-rafts and lifejackets in the classroom and then go to the pool so you can experience life-rafts and lifejackets for real.


This is a fun educational hands on course for everyone.

This course will not only prepare you in case the worst happens but also give you advice and training how to avoid being in a survival position.
