Safety at Sea
Safety at Sea: One day course - €100
Sat. Mar. 28 (1030-1700)
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 including MOB Ð we must know how to react if something goes wrong. The session afloat will concentrate on recovery of MOB and getting personnel aboard from the water. A set of briefing notes for skippers will follow but it is important that each crew have worked out a mechanism for recovery of personnel form the water.

This blog explores the coastline from Youghal in East Cork to the north Kerry and the Sahnnon Estuary. I am lucky enough to have sailed these waters for nearly 50 years and I want to share some of my insights and tips............................
