Safety at Sea Symposium

The 2015 Safety at Sea Symposium is scheduled for March 21-22, 2015 and will be held at University of Massachusetts, Boston, Massachusetts (Google Map). This event is the result of the collaboration of efforts by a number of organizations interested in promoting safety at sea. It is sponsored by the Marion Bermuda Cruising Yacht Association and organized by the Blue Water Sailing Club, one of the three sponsors of the Marion Bermuda Race along with the Royal Hamilton Amateur Dingy Club and the Beverly Yacht Club. The Marblehead to Halifax Ocean Race also has participated in the planning of the event and has encouraged their members to attend.

The symposium is sanctioned by US Sailing. The agenda includes safety topics described in the 2006-2007 “International Sailing Federation Special Regulations” (ISAF) Handbook, section 6 - Training.
