Prepare For Emergencies

How well prepared are you for an emergency while you are away at sea, on a yacht?  While the boat Captain would most likely be in charge in case of emergencies, it’s also wise to take extra precautions and go through a basic safety and first-aid checklist.


“A sailboat is a hazardous platform in a hostile environment. People on sailboats get cut, conked, bruised and burned, and can become nauseated, crushed, dehydrated, cold and sprained — and those are just the common problems. Sailors also bring with them an encyclopedia of pre-existing medical conditions, from obesity and age to heart disease and diabetes. All are compounded by the isolation of a vessel at sea.” –
