Crews competing in the Fastnet Race, AZAB and other long distance races need to have attended an RYA/ISAF Offshore Safety course within the last 5 years to satisfy the training required by ISAF Offshore Special Regulation 6.01 for category 0, 1 and some category 2 offshore races. Some members of the crew will also need to have a First Aid qualification.

For groups of 6 or more, courses can be arranged at a date and venue to suit and the training can be specifically tailored to your group. During 2014 SeaRegs worked alongside Ocean Safety to provide Advanced Survival training for the Volvo Ocean race teams, whilst we can’t always promise an environmental pool with waves, spray and blackout or dressing up as firemen we will endeavour to make the training as realistic as possible.

The aim of the 2 day ISAF Offshore Safety course is to provide skippers and crews of yachts wishing to take part in offshore races with the necessary skills and knowledge to deal with an emergency whilst offshore.  The course consists of 2 modules, basic sea survival and offshore safety. If you have attended the RYA Basic Sea Survival course within the last five years then you need only attend the ISAF Offshore Safety Training module.

ISAF Offshore Safety module includes training on the care & maintenance of safety equipment; storm sails; damage control; crew routines;  man overboard prevention and recovery; giving assistance to other craft; SAR organisation and methods; practical fire Precautions and fire fighting and distress alerting and survivor location aids.
