RYA/ISAF Offshore Safety Course
The RYA/ISAF Offshore Safety course provides training for recreational and racing skippers and crew who may encounter rough weather and problems at sea.
It combines two one-day courses – the RYA Sea Survival and the ISAF Offshore Safety course. The certificates awarded conform with the eligibility requirements of section 6.01 of the ISAF Special Regulations for category 0, 1 and some category 2 offshore races.
These regulations require a percentage of the crew to have taken personal survival training.
Full details of the Special Regulations can be found on the ISAF (World Sailing) website.
