Safety at Sea Seminars

At least 30% of a yacht’s crew (including the Captain and the Navigator or a Watch Captain) must have completed a US Sailing sanctioned Safety At Sea (SAS) Seminar within the last 5 years of the Race’s start.

Cruising Club of America Safety At Sea Seminar

When: June 15, 2016 (2 days before start)
Where: Newport, RI
Sign Up: link

This seminar is scheduled two days before the start of the 2016 Newport Bermuda Race so that sailors who have not completed the required training when they check in for the Race will have a last minute chance to do so. Typically this seminar serves boat crews who have been out of the country (Caribbean, Europe, etc) or unable to attend another seminar in their local area. It also serves captains, navigators and watch captains of racing yachts who may not be in full compliance of the Race Safety Requirement.


Additional events are available from U.S. Sailing’s website
