Survival training in the North Sea Sunday 27 October

Dear Sailors

Those who participated at the indoor sea survival training last week will agree that it was worth the time and the cost (expected 113 eur, finally we paid only 88 eur)

Getwet organizes another survival course, this time in the sea (and not in the indoor pool), on Sunday 27 October.

Even though most of us just sail near the coast in mild conditions, it is wise to have at least some basic knowledge on sea survival, including abandoning the boat in a life raft, using pyrotechnics and rescuing technics.

This is the next proposal:

  • What: Survival training in the North Sea, in English.
  • When: Sunday 27/10/2019 (beware it’s the weekend before Toussaint)
  • Cost (includes special suit and shoes): 100 eur (if we are a group of 10 people), 150 eur (if we are less than 10 people), 88 eur (if you attend the course in Dutch – not in this group).
  • Where: Watersportverbond in Scheveningen (2h from Brussels).


9:00 Welcome coffee and programme explanation.

9:15 Split into 2 groups: Group 1 practical part, group 2 theory

12:30 Lunch (soup, sandwiches).

13:30 Group 1 theory, group 2 practical part.

16:30 Evaluation and distribution of the certificates.

Please note that this is not an ISAF or SCTW course.

If you are interested, book the date and contact me at emilio.aeiou+sail@gmail.com. Please do not hesitate to share this among fellow sailors.

See you!
