Safety at Sea Update

January 20, 2021


Safety at Sea Update 1/20/2021: The Sailing Foundation has no plans to run an in-person Safety at Sea Seminar in the first half of this year. We will reevaluate the situation again later this spring to determine if a Fall Safety at Sea Seminar is possible.

If your International Safety at Sea Certificate expired in 2020 or 2021 and you were unable to schedule participation in a Hands-On course in either 2020 or 2021, your International Offshore Certificate will be extended by US Sailing, valid through the end of 2021.

Sailing Foundation Programs

Youth Sailing Initiative

We are here to augment the good work currently being done by local sailing programs and organizations. Focused on youth sailing at all levels, but with a special focus on racing, we believe sailing as an activity offers a unique medium for personal growth and enrichment.

Safety At Sea

We are dedicated to promoting safe boating throughout both the commercial and pleasure boating industry. In support of this effort, we conduct bi-annual Safety at Sea Seminars. These two-day seminars provide valuable information to cruising and racing sailors, as well as commercial operators.
