RYA First Aid

RYA First Aid

Re: Coronavirus First Aid Course Update

As we do not have the capacity to issue each student with a separate manikin due to an increased risk of close contact of transmission of covid-19 on first aid courses. We have taken the decision to temporary suspend all RYA first aid training at the centre until October 1st, where we will begin to conduct first aid training in groups of 2 or 3 people maximum.

However, please beware that your course will look different as we keep to the RYA and Bermuda government guidelines on social distancing and mask wearing. Some exercises such as the recovery position will be shown virtually. 


This 1-day RYA First Aid course provides you with knowledge and practical skills, of how to respond to a medical emergency. Having first aid knowledge can save lives, especially in remote locations. It includes AED Training, CPR with drowning protocol, recovery position in a confined space, seasickness, dehydration and medical assistance or advice by VHF. For commercial sea skippers, the knowledge of equipment inside a category C bag is included.

Please Note: There needs to be a minimum of 3 participants, which is required to make this course guaranteed to run.

If your preferred date is not available, we can arrange a date and time to your liking but we do require a minimum of 3 participants. Please do get in touch with the office at Hello@usailbda.com.

    “5 star to U Sail Bermuda. Great place to learn to sail. I’ve received my RYA Dinghy Level 2 certificate. Affordable rates for the weekend Learn to Sail for both Level 1 and Level 2. I am a pure beginner, so I like how they are in Harrington Sound with minimal boat traffic and it’s really just me trying to figure out where the wind is. They are all about safety so- someone is overlooking the water watching with a safety boat ready to go if required when you do boat hire (like I did after I’ve received my Level 2). Looking forward to hiring paddleboards and doing some windsurfing lessons with them. Overall, always received great service. All the instructors are very personable- Naphali, Donavin, Jonny and Thomas- Thank you for letting me achieve one of my bucket list.”

    “Had 2 fabulous mornings of WASZP foiling lessons with Aaron, learned a ton and had a fabulous time. I can't say enough great things about U Sail Bermuda, wonderful staff, great service, beautiful location on Harrington Sound, and the boats are in top condition with plenty of spares if things break. I'll be definitely be booking more sessions the next time we're in Bermuda.”
