SAFETY AT SEA SEMINARS

Our Safety-At-Sea Seminars have been developed by some of the most experienced sailors in the world. Portions are taught in a classroom, drills, demonstrations and practice sessions are held aboard, PFD and liferaft experience is provided in a swimming pool, hands-on firefighting and damage control are also taught. We also offer an archive of educational videos produced by America’s Cup winner and longtime Storm Trysail Club member Gary Jobson.

SAFETY AT SEA VIDEO LIBRARY

Soon after you register, you will receive a confirmation email that will provide you with a user name, password, and link to the Seminar’s website. That website provides a broad range of instructional material, both written and videos. You are required to review all the documents and watch the videos BEFORE coming to the Seminar. These videos vary from a few minutes in length to over twenty minutes and cover a variety of subjects from weather to storm sails to man overboard procedures. They will each have a series of questions at their conclusion and our goal is for you to be able to answer those questions demonstrating you have a good understanding of subject matter before attending in person. We expect you to view all the videos at least once but we hope you’ll use them more than that.
