Coastguard Boating Education are running an advanced sea survival course in Mechanics Bay on the 23-24 May 2015. They are low on numbers so if anyone may be needing this ticket to go offshore, contact them on 0800 40 80 90 (outside Auckland) or 09 361 4700 (within Auckland) to find out more or sign up. 

 

This course is a requirement for many offshore races and and useful to anyone else who may be going offshore at some point soon.

Presumably u have to do a 'basic' sea survival course before the advanced? How much do these courses cost?

Hi Romany, the course has no prerequisites but some coastal yachting experience is recommended. It costs $385 for the weekend. If you want any more info, take a look at http://www.boatinged...d-sea-survival/

I have done it twice once for the initial cert and again to renew it, we were told we had to do the whole course again instead of a refresher as it had changed a lot over the 5 years, (it hadn't).

 

In my opinion it isn't really advanced though does have some good info, most people who have done 2-3 years of racing would have no problem, probably 30% people on the course were newbies.

Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.
