Another successful Safety at Sea presentation - Ontario, Canada

'Port Credit Yacht Club'    .

Being appraised of the latest safety techniques and regulations is one of the most pressing needs of the prudent cruising sailor. Good yacht clubs across the sailing world realise this and try to fill the need, and the latest is the delightful Port Credit Yacht Club in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada who staged a presentation this week.

Captain Eric Hill of Royal Canadian Air Force Maritime Helicopter Tactics provided an informative and possibly life-saving presentation on Safety at Sea to an attentive audience.

The free presentation, co-sponsored by Chubb Insurance and Canadian Yachting magazine, was open to the general public and attracted a full room. Tanya Eyram from Chubb Insurance opened the evening with a short presentation on safety concerns from an insurer’s perspective and set the tone for the evening by engaging the audience on this important topic.

This most recent 2-hour presentation has left many of the participants interested in participating in the full 2-day session, complete with hands-on activities such as live flare practice and in-water sessions with life rafts.
