Safety

Safety is of fundamental importance to us as evident at all levels of operations from our National Sailing Plan, National School Plan, Operating and maintenance protocols, training, teaching and rescue drills to our role as national sailing adviser for Vietnam Canoeing Rowing Sailing Federation. An excellent track record for safety across 45 years of coaching.

Groupama insurance covers our boats and please see our medical waiver. First Aid boxes with CPR equipment and fire extinguishers  are in the event room and on rescue boats. Family Medical Practice gives 24 hour cover in a range of languages.

The 24 hour Family medical centre provides additional support.

Ratios of instructors to students is maximum 1:6 and ratio of rescue boats to dinghies is 1:6.
