Adventure under Sail is a fun, exciting and challenging activity that provides many benefits to those that take part. Safety at sea is our priority and we are proud of our safety record over the last 50 years.
Sailing can be strenuous and we train participants from the outset to minimise the risk of injury. However accidents can still happen and seasickness can impair ability to take oral medication, fluids and food.
Our sea staff have been trained in basic first aid and our boats have some medical kit. They are not equipped though to deal with major illness and we may, very occasionally, need to arrange for crew to be transported ashore for medical assistance. Please be aware that, unlike on land, where an ambulance can be expected in 10 mins this may take several hours. This may affect outcomes.
This can be particularly important for participants who suffer from diabetes, asthma, allergy, epilepsy or other significant conditions requiring urgent help. Please take time to fill in the following medical questionnaire accurately, well in advance of your voyage. We may need to make further enquiries and arrangements to ensure all of our crew are as safe as possible.
This ensures that our Skippers and First Mates will be fully briefed about any medical needs.
