All sailors who are planning to spend time on a boat in open water will find this course stimulating and enlightening. It is not only of interest to sailors but also helps shore crew to understand the safety requirements of offshore sailing and the search and rescue process in the event of an emergency.
The comprehensive syllabus designed by Yachting Victoria and run by the ORCV aims to assist offshore skippers and crews to develop an awareness of their respective responsibilities. Each session is presented by well respected experienced ocean sailors and offers practical strategies for coping with emergencies at sea. Through practical demonstrations and discussions skippers and crews will be able to familarise themselves with safety and emergency equipment, its purpose, deployment and use.
For members unable to attend the May course the SSSC will be repeated again in September and November this year.
This is a very popular course and we encourage anyone who is interested to enrol now.
