Re: Rescued at Sea - Are You Prepared?

I attended the Safety at Sea Seminar held on Bainbridge Island this weekend and I just thought I'd share that the Cruising World magazine containing Steve's article was handed out at the seminar. No discussion about the article in the seminar, but fun to see it there.

Great class and well worth the $$ and time spent!

Enjoy.

Can I start referring to myself as "Captain Smack - Published Author and SAR Expert" now?
Excellent article Smack! And much appreciated!

Any influence we can bring to bear as sailors would help.

Let me know when you're going to do your cert - I may join you.
Yup, I think I gave you Ron's name when you mentioned the research here.

It would be sweet to take the course with you. I will let you know.

I must be due to renew my Safety at Sea cert in the near future and Ron Trossbach has always been a presenter in Newport. Keep us informed of progress in including this in the curriculum and, if I need to do so this summer, I would be happy to talk to him.

Not till you have tried them all out in real life during rough seas.

I put the topic into the "things I've read about and hope to never have to try" knowledge.

Thank you Doug. I really appreciate that coming from you.

I hope that some of this stuff makes it into the Safety At Sea curricula. I'll continue to push from my end. It is definitely knowledge that is needed. And there seems to be a good deal of interest from both the sailing and merchant marine communities. It's a valuable conversation.

Thanks for coming on here and providing the inspiration to do the research!
