First Aid

614866 orig

Even a basic knowledge of First Aid can save a life, so it’s no surprise that training is mandatory for RYA Instructors, and a valuable skill to have in any walk of life. Our RYA-approved course is aimed primarily at “boaty types”, and covers areas of First Aid commonly encountered in a sailing/watersports environment, such as hypothermia and cold water shock.

In light of medical advances and changing advice, First Aid certificates are only valid for 3 years, after which it must be re-validated by attending another suitable course. MSC tries to organise at least one course per year to help keep the training team up to date. Non-members are more than welcome to join our courses, although preference will be given to club members.

We typically run an RYA First Aid course at the beginning of the year, but can put on additional courses if there is sufficient demand.
