Event Date: 
Saturday, April 7, 2018 (All day)

Participants who demonstrate competence in the theory and practical portions of the course receive a certificate. Offshore races such as the Chicago-Mac recommend certification in their safety regulations: “at least 30% of those aboard the boat, but not fewer than two members of the crew, unless racing single-handed, including the person in charge, shall have attended a…Safety at Sea Seminar within the last 5 years…”

The course material is comprehensive and includes all the elements of World Sailing’s Offshore Special Regulations (Appendix G). The material presented is appropriate for anybody who has safety equipment such as flares, GPS, VHF, DSC-VHF, inflatable PFDs or life rafts, MOB equipment, safety harnesses and tethers, fire extinguishers, EPIRBs, etc., but really, anyone on the lake in anything larger than a canoe would be safer for taking this course.

The cost per person will be $479 + (HST). Early bird discounts may be available. Registration is available at http://www.seasurvival.ca/sign-up.html. This might be a great gift for your skipper or crew, or an early father or mother’s day present.
