Safety at Sea - a Lifestyle

 

Going to sea always has been and remains inherently dangerous. Sailing a complex square-rigger can be particularly dangerous unless an attitude of safety consciousness is developed by every member of the crew – including the trainees. For example, one must automatically make sure that doors are properly secured so that they will not swing out of control when the ship rolls or tacks and that portholes are properly dogged to prevent flooding. Particular attention must be paid to housekeeping: a tonic can left on deck can easily cause a bad fall if stepped on during a roll and a book not secured can easily become a missile hazard. What might be harmless horseplay ashore becomes potentially dangerous behavior at sea. In short, safety at sea is a way of life.

There are several safety rules that are particularly important on a sailing ship:
