  9. Hi All, I am running my Offshore Medical course on Saturday May 12th 2018 You can book via this link - https://rayc.co.nz/offshoremedic/ It is a one day course which covers all Medical emergencies. The course is now accepted by World Sailing and may be used for Sydney- Hobart, Fastnet, RNI or Auckland -Noumea races or for Cat 1 certification prior to cruising As usual - all of us who run it (Bek, Sally, Angus, Suellen and I) donate our time and any profits we make get donated to a charity Book early to secure a place! Cheers Dr Dave

  11. Hi, An option to ponder possibly, is what I did to my previous yacht (Beale 37 Entropy) many years ago I got the rigger (Reef rite in Kerikeri who were excellent) to weld some 1" tube both sides of the boom to create a park bench. It was simple and relatively cheap to do I attached the lazy jacks to the tube (ran then forward when sailing) With an external track and bat cars it meant I could easily hoist/lower and sail her single handedly Cheers Dr Dave
  12. I am planning to run another Offshore Medical Course prior to the race next year. I'll liaise with Sally and Suellen. Once date is set I'll let you all know All welcome to attend Cheers Dr Dave
  13. You may have seen this already, but it is interesting Cheers Dr Dave
  14. Interesting discussion - I agree with comments re Boating NZ poor coverage- I dont subscribe anymore. Also Im not a facecloth user, however seems to be any coverage is Sunfast boys - really enjoyed your video! Excellent. How many pigs were killed for the making of the video (bacon butties)? Cheers Dr Dave
  15. Thank you to Angus at YNZ - he put this article in YNZ briefings http://www.yachtingnz.org.nz/news/201705/bandages-and-bone-breaks-a-feature-of-offshore-medic-course Cheers Dr Dave
  16. Thank you all, I am really pleased you all enjoyed it and hopefully it may help make your sailing safer The next course will be next year prior to the Noumea race - perhaps 3 -4 weeks prior. I will liaise with Sally from RAYC and set the date/venue within the next few months so that you all have plenty of notice As usual all profits will go to a charity. Last year to cyclone relief in Fiji and this year they have gone to helping set up a boat for a disabled yachting official Regards Dr Dave
  17. Hi All, We are working with YNZ to get this course accredited for World Sailing compliance. This looks very promising and once completed will mean that the course is compliant for Transpac/Fastnet etc It has already been accepted for Offshore events in NZ and Sydney- Hobart Places are filling quickly - if you are keen to enrol please do so ASAP Cheers Dr Dave
  18. Thanks Nes, It is accredited for 5 years Well done in RNI by the way - top effort Cheers Dave
  19. All, We can confirm that this course is now accredited by YNZ for Offshore category 1 and has previously been accepted by YA for Offshore events including Sydney Hobart We are running the next course at Framecad on Saturday April 22nd - details are on RAYC site, link is here http://rayc.co.nz/product/drdave We will donate any profits to help purchase equipment for an umpire with a disability to make her job easier If you are interested in learning about First Aid at sea or are racing offshore - please register and come along. Most people who have done the course have found it very
  20. Thanks guys, Yes I am going to try and run it annually and time it to run before the AKL- Fiji/Noumea etc Actually 3 boats in 2015 Hobart who had major issues ( compound fractured femur, Multiple broken ribs + pneumothorax and another with fractures) and despite 2 crew on each boat doing the Australian Offshore Medical Course - not one person was competent to give morphine! This was the impetus for me to start the course - I thought I could help NZ yachties when there is no Dr or Nurse aboard. I have now been approached by YA to give them some advice also Cheers Dave
  21. It was suggested that I put this in the cruising forum also Unfortunately the Va'Vau race is not going ahead however we are still running "Dr Dave's Offshore Medical Course" on Saturday 22 April The link is here - http://rayc.co.nz/product/drdave Dr Dave Austin will be leading a course at RAYC* on Saturday 22nd April 2017 that will cover the use of the YNZ first aid kits.
