RYA Sea Survival Course

Sea SurvivalThis is the course which we hope will never be needed but has the potential to save your life.

It involves some classroom work as well as a session in a swimming pool getting familiarised with liferafts, lifejackets and other emergency equipment and procedures.

It is compulsory for all instructors and other commercial skippers.

Until you’ve tried it the experience of being in the water with a lifejacket and clothing cannot be properly understood, nor can the level of difficulty involved in getting from the water into a liferaft.

We often talk about flares and sometimes glibly refer to the instructions. You;ll be quite surprised to experience letting them off for real and please, don’t try this at home!

RYA RADAR Course

DiesRADAR

Many experts believe that radar is the king of electronic navigation but you can be the judge.

More than GPS and other associated electronic systems, radar relies on the knowledge and skill of the operator to interpret the information given.

This course arms the student with the ability to correctly interpret the information shown on a radar screen.
