Two Offshore Personal Survival and Safety at Sea Courses will be held in Ontario this spring:

  • March 24 & 25 at the Ashbridge's Bay Yacht club
  • March 21 & April 9 at the Humber Bay Sailing Centre

In 2003, ISAF (now World Sailing) introduced a standard basic syllabus for the training of safety courses in order to establish an Internationally recognized qualification. The training requirements form part of the Offshore Special Regulations. These courses are run and established by World Sailing Member National Authorities (MNA) and conform to World Sailing minimum standards. Sail Canada accredits Offshore Personal Survival training organizations and instructors.
