RYA Sea Survival
Sea Survival training saves lives. It is essential for any skipper to be prepared for every conceivable circumstance before leaving port. The RYA/MCA Sea Survival Course emphasis is on using life-rafts and the day includes a two-hour practical session in the pool, learning how to inflate, climb into, upright and survive in a life-raft. The course also covers a wide range of other survival issues, including helicopter rescue, immersion in cold water, and life jackets, as well as an outdoor practical session firing a live flare. The course highlights the importance of having the correct safety equipment and the knowledge of how to use it. The RYA/MCA sea survival is also day one of the World Offshore Sailing Sea Survival Course required for those involved in yacht racing.
