Ocean Gem is regularly audited by registered Australian Sailing National Equipment Safety Auditors to ensure we are compliant to the safety standards required for offshore sailing. Our safety audits are performed at least once annually and we are usually audited to Category 1 (Trans-Tasman / Sydney to Hobart) or Category 2 (Coastal Ocean Passage) standards each year depending on the events we have planned.
These rigid safety standards ensure that yachts and crews are well prepared and trained to handle extreme conditions confidently. Many of our crew have undergone sea safety and survival, marine first aid, radar, offshore skipper, radio communications and diesel engine maintenance training courses as part of the Category 1 & 2 crew training requirements.
