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.
