World Sailing Offshore Safety

This 2-day World Sailing Offshore Personal Survival Course provides training for skippers and crews intending to sail away from protected inshore coastal waters, who may encounter rough weather and problems at sea.


A weekend course, run from our dedicated classroom in Port Hamble Marina.  Both days start promptly at 9am in our classroom and finish about 4.45pm.

Day one (Saturday) is classroom based and covers heavy weather sailing techniques, including rigging storm sails and use of sea anchors as well as weather forecasting, fire fighting, MOB rescue and recovery, search patterns, effective communications and a live flare demo (subject to coastguard approval).

Day two (Sunday) includes the RYA Sea Survival syllabus including a practical pool based session, with a liferaft.

Both days finish about 4.45pm. 

World Sailing and Racing Requirements

The certificate awarded confirms crew eligibility under section 6.01 of the World Sailing Special Regulations for category 0, 1 and 2 offshore races (such as the Fastnet, Caribbean 600 or Round Ireland Race) which requires a % of the crew to have taken personal survival training.
If you have a crew for the Fastnet race, book early to ensure you can all train together.
