CYC to Host US Sailing Certified Safety at Sea Seminar April 1-2, 2017
Chicago Yacht Club Safety at Sea Seminar April 1-2, 2017

Ever wonder what you would do if someone fell overboard from your boat? Do you have a plan to deal with heavy weather if you can’t reach a safe harbor? Interested in selecting the right emergency communications equipment or storm sails, but you’re not sure what to buy? If so, a US Sailing Certified Safety at Sea (SAS) Seminar is what you need.

Chicago Mackinac Safety Regulations strongly recommend that at least 30% of you crew have a valid SAS certification. Moderated and taught by experienced, lifelong sailors who include some of the top names in sailing and safety.
  • Designed for sailors of all types and levels — cruisers and racers, novices and experts
  • Appropriate for a wide range of boats — small, big, monohulls, multihulls (and powerboats, too) — that are sailed anywhere — near shore and offshore
  • Curriculum is certified by US Sailing, with special attention to conditions and challenges of the Chicago sailing area with special focus on the CYC Race to Mackinac
  • More than 1,000 sailors attend safety seminars around North America every year and many bring their families and crews
  • The certifications are good for five years
There are two options for the seminar (One day or Two day) on April 1-2, 2017.

One Day: In classroom lecture, seminar, and discussions
Two Day: Includes the first in class day, as well as highly interactive demonstrations, performing physical drills and hands-on exercises in a pool. Must bring sailing gear and PFD as you will get wet.
