Marion Bermuda Race Safety at Sea Seminar 2013. It’s not too late to join the smart sailors for the upcoming seminar this weekend, March 23-24, at the University of Massachusetts-Boston campus.

Walk-ons are welcome at the 2013 Marion Bermuda Race Safety at Sea Seminar this weekend. Attendance at a US Sailing sanctioned safety seminar is required for a number of crew, skippers and watch captains in the ocean race. But you don’t have to be racing Marion to Bermuda or Marblehead to Halifax or Annapolis to Newport or any other offshore race to need this course.

You could be on the return crew from Bermuda or vacation cruising offshore with your family. Safety for any sailor comes first and a safe passage is an often unspoken, but absolute priority.

The Seminar is held March 23-24 at the University of Massachusetts-Boston campus. Details and Registration may be found at Marion Bermuda

On-site registration will begin at 0700, March 23, 2013. The program begins promptly at 0730 and is scheduled to continue until 1600. Sessions on Sunday, March 24 are staggered to allow completion of the full curriculum.

What you can learn at a Safety at Sea seminar may save your best friend's life. It will help you anticipate problems and prevent them. At least, If necessary, what you learn will help you manage a crisis at sea safely. Couples sailing together should both take this course. All those sailors from the captain to the cook interested in improving their safety knowledge for long distance passage making should attend.

The agenda on Saturday, March 23, will once again be moderated by safety at sea expert, John Rousmaniere, and will include a very experienced group of speakers covering a series of topics of vital interest to all serious sailors… crew overboard recovery; communications; medical/seasickness; heavy weather; steering maintenance and repair; pyrotechnics, signaling and life raft inflation and more. In addition to the safety topics there will be special breakout sessions for the Marblehead to Halifax Ocean Race and the Marion Bermuda Race.
