The Storm Trysail Foundation will conduct a one-day US Sailing Sanctioned Safety at Sea Seminar on Saturday, April 16, 2016 at SUNY Maritime College in the Bronx. This will be a hands-on seminar where attendees will fire distress flares, put out fires, set storm sails and rescue a man overboard among other things. The seminar will be supported by educational videos produced by US Sailing and Gary Jobson, long time Storm Trysail member. The videos will cover required subjects and be available online to at- tendees prior to the seminar.
Attendance at the seminar will bring a US Sailing Safety at Sea certificate. Attendees can also achieve full ISAF certification by successful completion of a test on all the subject matter. This seminar is for racers and cruisers, and includes breakfast pastries and coffee, lunch, and afternoon snacks and refreshments.
For your information, our sister club, the Cruising Club of America, is planning to hold a one day Safety at Sea Seminar in Newport, RI on June 16th.
