Going back to the OPs question, we do still cover a live flare session as part of our Sea Survival course. With the requirement to carry flares being mandatory for coded vessels and vessels over a certain length, we feel this is an important part of our course, and adds a great deal of value.
If you would like to attend a Sea Survival course, please view our available dates at RYA Sea Survival | Stormforce Coaching
. If you send us a private message, there is a possibility we may supply a Ribnet Discount code :-)
