We are often asked about the training courses we offer our crew, we have now built an online learning site and will start sharing some of our material. These courses are easy to follow from a computer, tablet or phone – the material is presented in modules which you can do in your own time and at your own pace. The first course available is our Skippers Guide for small vessels which is used as preparation for the SAMSA skippers exam. Go to And the best part – it’s for free !
RSA Safetrx: This is a tracking app, used internationally and customised for South Africa. SafeTrx is available to download from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store Enter your vessel details, the people on board, your planned route and your ETA. And load your emergency contact details (i.e spouse / person at home). Then, if you are late or if you press the panic button, NSRI is alerted and we are sent your position. False alarms do happen so, while we are preparing to launch, a controller will call you or your emergency contact to verify if it was a mistake. (…)
