RYA Sea Survival
Minimum age 16
Port Solent, Portsmouth
Minimum 8 people
The course includes a mix of classroom theory, group discussion and a 2-hour practical session in a nearby swimming pool wearing lifejackets, with a liferaft.
During the classroom theory session, you will get some information on real life case studies and survival stories. You will absorb as much information as possible from your instructor about safety at sea, the different way of calling for help with dummy versions of most items on the market today. If your lucky you might get to try the basic rations contained in the raft canisters.
During the practical pool session, you’ll learn techniques for swimming whilst wearing an inflated life-jacket, how to safely enter the water, how to right an over-turned life-raft and how to climb in, in the most efficient way. You will also take part in a group role play where the instructor will designate causalities and a situation where you will have to pull together as a team and put into practise everything you’ve learnt during the course.
