A fully interactive presentation aimed at yacht or Motor Cruiser crew i.e. husbands, wives, partners, guests or friends who sail aboard a yacht but who do not necessarily have the knowledge, experience or skills to take command of the vessel if the skipper was injured, ill or  overboard. The talk begins with an interactive scenario to challenge the audience on what to do if the skipper was suddenly incapacitated whilst helming offshore. We  look at dealing with an MOB, fire or gas explosion aboard. VHF Radio simulators are used to demonstrate how to send a Digital Distress Alert and Mayday by voice and the use of an EPIRB or PLB to raise the alarm and give position. Chart Plotter MOB facilities and the use of flares are also discussed.
