Every skipper and crew member should train how to quickly do the right thing in an emergency on the high seas. How to launch the life raft and experience how you move in it on the water, how to apply first aid, to use distress signals, and familiarise themselves with means of stopping leaks, using hand-held fire extinguishers, how to get the yacht ready for a storm and a great deal more. The Hanseatische Yachtschule (HYS) has carried out many ISAF-certified safety training courses in the past. The HYS cooperated with OffTEC for the first time in the 2017 season OffTEC.
With waves up to two metres in height, wind, thunder, lightning and rain by day or by night – the big water basin of the Maritime Training Centre is ideal for training safety techniques and how to correctly handle protective equipment and various lifesaving appliances in all weather conditions. Combined with the section of the course held on the yachts of the Hanseatische Yachtschule in Glücksburg, this safety-training course is particularly realistic.
