  1. RYA safety boat presentation Suggested methods for dealing with small craft in a sheltered environment

  2. Guiding principles • Count heads! • Ask if help is required, and if so, what. • Recover and return students to shore if the situation is becoming serious. • Leave the craft ‘tagged’ to let other crews know it has been dealt with. • Don’t become another casualty yourself .

  3. Guiding principles • If students are in the water near to your boat, turn the engine off. • Even if they are not, consider turning the engine off. • Involve the casualties in their rescue. • Holding or raising the tip of the mast may be all that is required if sailors are tired. • Whilst dealing with a rescue, the rest of the fleet may be without cover. Remain alert for them.

  4. Kites • Check to see if the sailor is OK, and if not apply the first principles. • Sailor will be dressed for immersion so…..
