Safety Management System

Sailing on large yachts can be dangerous and so Swanning Around takes safety very seriously.  ”Eve” is certified under the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) National Standard for Commercial Vessels (NCSV).  The NCSV is largely focussed on power vessels and so does not concern itself with sails and rigging, which are possibly the most dangerous component of a sailing boat.  Therefore “Eve” is also certified to Yachting Australia Special Regulations Category 1 for ocean racing yachts - the same strict criteria that apply to Sydney Hobart race yachts.

In addition to boat safety, the skipper and crew are trained and certified to national standards and are familiar with all “Eve” specific operating and emergency procedures.

Passengers will receive a safety briefing prior to every departure - with particular focus on the sailing risks from ropes under high loads and swinging booms.
