RYA World Sailing Offshore Personal Survival Course
Previously know as the RYA / ISAF - World Sailing Offshore Safety course, the RYA World Sailing Offshore Personal Survival Course satisfies the training required by RYA/World Sailing 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 World Sailing Offshore Personal Survival 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 RYA/ World Sailing Offshore Personal Survival certificate, you will also need to hold the RYA Basic Sea Survival certificate, issued within the last 5 years. Our course is run over a 2 day weekend, giving you the option to take the RYA/ World Sailing Offshore Personal Survival Course as a stand alone course - and if required, the RYA Basic Sea Survival course as well.
