WSVO Safety Training

Safety for you and your crew

This one day WSVO safety training is inspired by the two-day ISAF safety training and is mainly suited for charter sailors who want to learn the handling of life vests, life raft, distress signals and fire extinguishers. Like the two-day training it is an extensive practical and theoretical training regarding safety on board.

This knowledge helps you and your crew during every cruising trip and every race.

This course is approved and certified by the WSVO, the "Wassersport Schulvereinigung Österreichs" (Austrian water sports education association)
