Most of us will probably never have to go to a life raft.
Nevertheless, it is advisable to be prepared in case of need, to react properly even in tricky situations and to keep calm. It is a proven fact that trained seafarers have significantly higher chances of survival in emergencies.
A Safety Training is a must for professional sailors and a valuable and possibly life-saving supplement for everyone else.
