The Cruising Club of America – Newport Bermuda Race Safety at Sea Seminar will offer an expanded curriculum from 17-18 March 2012 at Newport, Rhode Island’s Hyatt Regency Hotel. The registration is now open and all sailors, skippers, and crews are invited to attend.

New rules apply for Newport Bermuda Race participants that require a minimum of 30% of all crew members to complete a sanctioned Safety at Sea seminar. The captain and either the navigator or a watch captain must be included in the required 30%. Two crew members must be First Aid/CPR certified as well.
Saturday’s program will feature both a full US Sailing Sanctioned Safety at Sea Seminar and an ISAF Offshore Personal Survival Refresher Course for those who have completed two or more sanctioned seminars since 2002. Sunday’s program offers three options — a Red Cross First Aid/CPR Course, a Newport Bermuda Race Preparation Seminar and a Practical, Hands-On Training Seminar.
The program is open to all mariners, not just Newport Bermuda Race participants. Register now here
. The Hyatt Regency offers a special rate for safety seminar attendees through Feb. 14 here
