ISAF/World Sailing Theory Classroom Course

The course

The RYA/ISAF World Sailing Offshore Safety course equips sailors 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 World Sailing Offshore Safety Certification students will need to complete both this course and the one day RYA Sea Survival course.

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
