  • RYA First Aid

    RYA First Aid

    For anyone who spends time on the water, the RYA First Aid Course is a great course. If a medical emergency arises, a little first aid knowledge and immediate action can save lives. This is especially true in situations where it’s not easy to call an ambulance or get to a hospital.
