ISAF safety training

Surviving at sea

The ISAF-certified skipper safety training by WELL SAILING on the Baltic Sea is a must for every sailor and motorboat driver!

A safety training should be part of the obligatory program of professional seafaring. Partially, the ISAF certificate is mandatory on traditional ships, some sport boats which are for commercial purposes and for the participation in regattas. Also, if you sail or drive motor boats in private the skipper training "Safety at sea" can be lifesaving. You will get to know situations that won't make any difference between leisure and profession!

Man overboard maneuver

No skipper likes to hear this call. If it happens it begins with the problem of holding eye contact with the person and the quick maneuver to get to the man or woman. Should this succeed there is another big problem coming ahead: how do I get this person back on board? Usually all trainings end here and the skipper faces a real problem.

We instead make this problem a subject of discussion on the HAMBURG ancoa YACHTFESTIVAL and demonstrate possible solutions on how even a small crew can lift an immobile person safely back on board.

Thanks to the kind support of the manufacturer we are able to additionally test the latest rescue system and to present it in practice.
