Safety boat training

We are running our annual safety boat training day on Saturday 29 March from the club 1000-1600hrs.

The day gives you the opportunity to try the safety boats outside of the racing environment and with assistance from experienced club members and RYA instructors.

The day will be split into workshops both on and off the water. These will range from beginners skills to advanced rescue skills giving all an opportunity to learn.

To give you a flavour some of the topics covered will be:

  • VHF Procedure
  • Pre start checks
  • Launch & recovery
  • Slow speed manoeuvring
  • High speed manoeuvring
  • Recovering a capsize
  • Mark laying
  • Man overboard
  • Working with the OOD

Please could you complete the club safety boat day application and answer the questions so we can identify which workshops will be most popular.

Any questions please do not hesitate to contact Kevin Headon at
