Walk-ons are welcome at the 2013 Marion Bermuda Race Safety at Sea Seminar this weekend. Attendance at a U.S. Sailing sanctioned safety seminar is required for a number of crew, skippers and watch captains in the ocean race. But you don’t have to be racing Marion to Bermuda or Marblehead to Halifax or Annapolis to Newport or any other offshore race to need this course.

The Seminar is held March 23-24 at the University of Massachusetts/Boston campus. Details and Registration may be found at www.marionbermuda.com.

On-site registration will begin at 7 a.m., March 23, 2013. The program begins promptly at 7:30 a.m., and it is scheduled to continue until 4 p.m. Sessions on Sunday, March 24 are staggered to allow completion of the full curriculum.

The agenda on Saturday, March 23, will be moderated by safety at sea expert, John Rousmaniere and will include a group of speakers covering a series of topics: crew overboard recovery; communications; medical/seasickness; heavy weather; steering maintenance and repair; pyrotechnics, signaling and life raft inflation and more. In addition to the safety topics there will be special breakout sessions for the Marblehead to Halifax Ocean Race and the Marion Bermuda Race.

Sunday, March 24 is comprised of practical, hands-on training safety seminars: Emergency Medical Care at Sea (Dr. Michael Jacobs), Understanding Weather and Gulf Stream (Frank Bohlen and Ken McKinley) and In-Water Training (Dan O'Connor/Life Raft and Survival Equipment).
