Preparing Blue Waters Cruising

"The keys to a successful journey are rigorous preparation and
adherence to some prevention rules. Medical or surgical emergencies
are rare, and can often be dealt with by remote medical contact.
New communication technologies such as satellite phones make it
possible to seek medical advice from professionals, or even for
sailers to treat themselves with very short prior training, provided
that the required equipment and medicines have been embarked
before leaving. Sophisticated rescue can also be organized.
(Rev Med Suisse 2017; volume 13. 934-937)

First Aid Kits


"When you are out on your boat, there is no well-stocked pharmacy close at hand and you are beyond the reach of quick-response medical assistance. 


Whether setting out for a day, week, or longer, you need a well-stocked first-aid kit on board. .....


But having basic supplies at the ready could save you a trip to the emergency room — or even a life." (BoatUS)
