The new Safety at Sea Online course is launched by the US Sailing, the National Governing Body for the Sailing. The US Sailing Safety at Sea Committee Chairman, Chuck Hawley, said that the new Safety at Sea Online course is a very good course for anyone interested in sailing right from the novices to the sailing experts.

It is made in accordance with the hands-on sessions offered by leading clubs and academies all over the country. The sailors have been asking for a course that they can take at their own pace and this is why the US Sailing came out with this online course. The sailors’ request for learning the skills from their homes and spending less time in the classroom has become a reality through this online course, said Hawley. (more…)
