The safety of the competitors, our customers, is very important.

This service is provoided in RIBs that cover the course by recognised methods and patterns such that any competitor can be assisted swifty in the event of an incident.  This may be anythng from a simple capsize to a serious injury. 

The skills of those involved in this part of the team are far reaching: an experienced RIB driver able to position a boat in close proximity to a casualty and without causing further injury; an ability to concentrate for long periods watching out for any sailor who needs help; knowledge of those boats racing so that the risks are fully understood; the ability to right a capsize, whatever the boat is; a willingness to get into the water when necessary to rescue a sailor.
