Safety at Sea
Safety at Sea: One evening course - €50
Wed 3rd Dec 19:30 to 22:00
Safety, Distress and Rescue. Planning and preperation is key to being safe afloat - this is coverd in the SAFETY section of the evening. This course will include a session on how to properly brief a crew and carry out safety checks before going afloat. Whilst the emphasis is on the prevention of accidents we must know how to react if something goes wrong.
When we cannot sort the problem ourselves then we must know how to call for help - this is covered in the DISTRESS section and includes the use of flares, VHF Radio, EPIRB etc. We must know how to do this in a safe and calm manner.
Finally , when we have called for help, we must know how to react if a fellow sailor, a helicopter, a lifeboat or other rescue boat comes to hep us - this is the RESCUE section.
