Marine First Aid 7th December
1 day Course Most yachtsmen and women undertake basic first aid training as a precaution against the inevitable accidents at sea, but in this training we are only taught how to stabilize a patient until the ambulance arrives.
This is usually 11 minutes in a capital city in Australia. At sea off the Queensland coast, as an example, using established Australian search and rescue services, the minimum response time for on/site medivac is three hours.
This training is mandatory for racing yachtsmen and highly recommended for all who venture offshore under power or sail.
