ISAF Guide to Offshore Personal Safety for Racing and Cruising

'Guide to Personal Safety'    .

The ISAF Guide to Offshore Personal Safety for Racing and Cruising will provide essential reading for sailors undertaking the ISAF Offshore Personal Survival Course, which equips them with the knowledge to be safe at sea and prevent and deal with emergencies. The handbook provides important information to accompany the course.

Guide to Offshore Personal Safety for Racing and Cruising -  .. .  
The ISAF Offshore Personal Safety Course came about as a result of the 1998 Sydney Hobart Race. The coroner’s report from that race asked for extra training to happen to the skippers and crews.

Following on from that a section in the Offshore Special Regs, section 6, actually asks for 30% of all of the crew who are going into category zero, one and two races to have undertaken training, that’s equivalent to the Fastnet Race, Transat and longer distance races.

The two day course includes theoretical and practical sessions.

ISAF Technical co-ordinator Henry Thorpe said, 'ISAF are fully committed to increasing safety at sea. This book is packed with valuable information and years of experience from both cruising and racing sailors alike. It offers reasoned recommended levels of safety equipment and training for oceanic and offshore sailing. ISAF see this as another step to increasing safety awareness alongside the ISAF Offshore Special Regulations.'
