The Harken/Ocean Safety presentation partnership in action

SAFE SAILING: A presentation at the Royal Southampton Yacht Club last week was the first of a series of lectures around the UK where Ocean Safety and Harken combine their knowledge to demonstrate safe sailing.

The first event was attended by over 60 club members who heard the two leading marine companies explain how important it is for sailors to understand their safety equipment, how it works and how it can be integrated with hardware around the vessel.

Ocean Safety demonstrated the use of lifejackets as well as MOB equipment, including a liferaft, while interacting with the guests during the session.

Harken showed how having as little friction in sail handling equipment as possible is vital to ensure that a vessel is handled safely. The company also showed how improved modern sail handling systems can reduce the need to move around the vessel and allow crews to stay within the safety of the cockpit.

Forthcoming 2013 dates include:

● 12th February at London Corinthian YC

● 23rd February at Lymington Town SC

● 12th March at Cardiff Bay YC

● 6th March at Royal Dart YC
