Sea Survival

What would you do if your boat strikes a container in the middle of the English Channel? How would you cope if attacked by a great white shark whilst surfing the Agulhas current?

The club has teamed up with Portsmouth Marine Training to run a 2 day RYA Sea Survival Course. The first day, a Saturday, will be held in the library at LSC with Sunday practising climbing into a liferaft in a swimming pool in Portsmouth.

The topics covered include:-

Practical Weather Forecasting

This course is designed to build on the theory imparted in RYA shore-based courses and show how the amateur sailor can marshal a range of resources to produce a bespoke weather forecast. Synoptic, meso-scale and convective-scale data are brought together to take advantage of both traditional and modern electronic sources. Emphasis is laid on the integration of weather forecasting and passage planning to enable the yachtsman, in some cases, to forecast marine weather to a better standard than the professionals and to achieve some independence when professional resources are not available.

Boat Electrics Course

This course is divided into two logical halves: on the one hand, generating or acquiring electrical energy and storing it; on the other hand, using that energy in a boat’s systems. Along the way, optimising the use of a scarce resource at sea and avoiding corrosion are covered. Included in the cost of the course is a copy of the RYA’s book Boat Electrics. No previous knowledge of physics or electrical theory is required.

International Certificate of Competence /CEVNI

CEVNI stands for Code Europeen des Voies de la Navigation Interieure and is the code governing navigation on the interconnected European inland waterways.

Signs, rules and procedures for navigating the European inland waterways are all included within the CEVNI code and in the same way as pleasure craft on coastal waters are expected to abide by the COLREGS, pleasure craft on the inland waterways of Europe are expected to know and follow the CEVNI code.
