The Storm Trysail Foundation conducted a one-day US Sailing Sanctioned Safety at Sea Seminar on Saturday, April 16, 2016 at SUNY Maritime College in the Bronx. The hands-on seminar had attendees fire distress flares, put out fires, set storm sails and rescue a man overboard among other things. The seminar was supported by educational videos produced by US Sailing and Gary Jobson, long time Storm Trysail member. The videos cover required subjects and are available online to seminar attendees.
This seminar was sanctioned by US Sailing. All attendees can qualify for a US Sailing Offshore Safety at Sea Certificate. Attendees can also achieve full ISAF certification by successful completion of a test on all the subject matter. The seminar was open to racers and cruisers.
Persons who signed up for ISAF certification will receive course materials directly from US Sailing.
