Crews competing in offshore and long distance races are requires to have attend a World Sailing Offshore Safety course within the last 5 years. It is a 2-day course covering care & maintenance of safety equipment, storm sails, damage control, crew routines, man overboard prevention & recovery, practical fire precautions & fire fighting. Some members of the crew may also be require to complete a first aid course too.

For groups of 6 or more, courses can be arranged at a date and venue to suit and the training can be 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 a fireman we will endeavour to make the training as realistic as possible.

For all RORC and other longer distance offshore yacht races, 30% (but not less than 2) of the crew are required to have completed an World Sailing Offshore Safety Course (previously ISAF) within the last 5 years.

SeaRegs are recognised by the RYA to run the World Sailing Offshore Safety course. This course satisfies the training required by World Sailing 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. 

The aim of the 2-day World Sailing 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 to attend the World Sailing Offshore Safety Training module.
