Sailing Medical Emergencies - Thermal & Trauma

Outdoor UW & Hoofers
Wednesday, January 31
6:30 - 8 pm
TITU
Cost: Free
Help sailors identify medical emergencies and know how to respond to them.

Sailing can present some specific medical emergencies, and this class will help sailors identify them and know how to respond to them. Emphasis will be on Hypothermia, Hyperthermia, Head Trauma, and Severe Bleeding.

Our Winter Sailing Seminars are a great way to expand your horizons during the winter months.  The seminars are open to anyone who is eligible to be a sailing club member and no prior sailing experience is required; you do not need to be a current member of the sailing club to attend. Feel free to invite your landlubber friends!

Seminars occur weekly and cover a variety of nautical topics, such as racing tactics, sailing around the world, and sailing medical emergencies. 

This year we ask participants to bring at least one non-perishable item per seminar to be donated to the Lussier Community Education Center. Most needed items include: olive oil, vegetable oil, maple syrup, sugar, flour, jelly/jam, pancake mix, paper towels, toilet paper, & baby wipes. Get more ideas from their Food Pantry Donation Wish List
