The Safety at Sea One Day Seminar is for sailors who are participating in OSR Category 3 and SER Coastal Category events such as the Southern Straits Race, Patos Island Race, and Swiftsure Race.  The seminar includes classroom and practical sessions. 

This seminar does not include pool sessions or life raft training, and it does not meet the requirements for OSR Category 0-1-2 offshore and oceanic races such as the Van Isle 360, Vic-Maui, Pacific Cup, Transpac, etc.  

The one day seminar topics include a review of required safety equipment, preparing heavy weather sails, obtaining and interpreting local weather forecasts, hypothermia and cold water immersion, man overboard, emergency signals and communications.  

Participants are required to bring to the seminar the personal safety gear that they intend to use in the Southern Straits Race, Patos Island Race, Swiftsure Race, or a similar overnight, near-coastal race or passage, including PFD, harness, safety tether, and personal MOB light.  

This seminar will meet the following safety training requirement: 

"Not fewer than two members of the crew, unless racing single handed, shall have attended a half-day, one-day, or two-day Safety at Sea Seminar within the last 5 years, or other courses as accepted by their national authority."   

Participants who complete the seminar will receive a Safety at Sea One Day Seminar certificate, valid for five years.
