Lifesling Clinic
It is time to sign up for the June 3, 2017 Lifesling Clinic. It will begin at 0900 with classroom instruction at the Olympia Yacht Club. During that session, that lasts about two hours, you will get a detailed explanation of how the Lifesling is properly used to get an overboard crew member back onto the boat. This instruction is followed by dockside drills where you will see how to properly rig the hoisting tackle and then do some dry runs on the technique to use the Lifesling and hoisting tackle. Next you get a chance to put all that knowledge and skill to work as we do real overboard drills with volunteers in survival suits splashing around and hoping to be rescued.
 
The Lifesling is the best method for one person to rescue someone who has fallen off a sailboat. To show you what to do in the worst case scenario, each participant does an actual rescue without any help from the other students, although always under the watchful eye of the instructor to insure safety. It is best to learn this method, or refresh your skills, on the boat you own or frequently sail on. To encourage skippers and crew to take the class together the $15 fee will be waived for any skipper who has two or more crew take the class with them. Basic sailing skills are required. The class lasts most of the day. Space is limited. Please call Dee or Andy Saller at 360-491-0175 or email hsaller214@aol.com to reserve your spot or ask questions about the class. It is challenging and a lot of fun.
 
We hope you will join us.
