Seminar Details

Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue (RCM-SAR) crews will share examples of how people find themselves in trouble based on real life rescue calls and explain how it could have been avoided.   They will provide some easy, practical ways to make your trip on the water safer and more enjoyable.  They are passionate about boating and believe it should be enjoyed by more people on this beautiful coast but just want to ensure you don’t need them on a dark and stormy night.     RCM-SAR crews conduct over 800 rescues missions per year with 41 rescue stations and 1,000+ volunteer crew.    They have a strong passion for helping people on the water but prefer to prevent you needing their services.
