RYA Safety Boat Course #1
Date(s): Sat Aug 7, 2021 - Sun Aug 8, 2021
Time: 09:00 - 17:00
Donaghadee Sailing Club
An opportunity for over 16’s to learn the necessary skills required to operate a powerboat both safely and competently in the role of safety and rescue at primarily sailing events to recover small craft and persons in the water, but could include swimmers, SUP’s/stand up paddle-boards, kayaks, windsurfers etc. Participants must already have have achieved their RYA L2 Powerboat qualification, and ideally have gained some relevant experience operating a powerboat in a similar role.
The executive restrictions have now changed to allow us to resume training, albeit with caution and mitigation in place to ensure the safety of our club members and instructors.
Participants will receive a DSC ‘snood’ style face covering, and we’d ask that it is worn when required on and off the water. DSC operate the ‘Hands, Space, and Face’ policy on all our training courses, and we would ask that all participants abide by these guidelines to ensure the safety of everyone.
Once again we’re still unable to use the clubhouse and facilities for changing etc. So please come prepared to go afloat, bring suncream warm hats and also a towel to sit on on the way home in the car, a fleece would also be useful as our classroom is although covered and heated as required is outside.
Please see our Covid19 booking conditions & procedures, and comply with them prior to booking and or attending the club, thank you!
Bookings are closed for this event.
