- Saturday 24th July Virtual Classroom £120

 The RYA / ISAF  - World Sailing Offshore Safety course satisfies the training required by  World Sailing (formally ISAF) Offshore Special Regulation 6.01 for category 0, 1 and some category 2 offshore races. It is suitable for skippers and crews of yachts wishing to take part in the Rolex Fastnet Race, the ARC and other offshore and ocean races. It is also a valuable course for cruising yachtsmen looking to go further afield on ocean passages, where you will need to be self reliant.

The aim of the ISAF World Sailing Offshore Safety course is to provide skippers and crews of yachts with the necessary skills and knowledge to deal with an emergency whilst offshore.

In order to obtain the full ISAF World Sailing  Offshore Safety certificate, you will also need to hold the RYA Basic Sea Survival certificate, issued within the last 5 years or (or within 7 years for the 2021 Fastnet race - new COVID extension issued 30th April 2021).  Our course is run over a 2 day weekend, giving you the option to take the ISAF World Sailing Offshore Safety Course as a stand alone course - and if required, the RYA Basic Sea Survival course as well.
