Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) June 01, 2012
Following nine successful years of medical training on the water, The Moorings, MedSail, and the Wilderness Medical Society are proud to announce the upcoming 10th Annual Medicine for Mariners and Safety at Sea Conference in the British Virgin Islands, February 2-9, 2013.
During the MedSail program, attendees will have an outstanding educational opportunity while they cruise the gorgeous British Virgin Islands. This week-long seminar is designed for physicians, health professionals, and sailors who have a special interest in medical care in the marine environment. Participants live aboard their chartered yacht for the entire event, which includes seminars at different island locations each day. The event speaker are highly experienced educators and widely recognized experts in their fields, with a goal of providing participants with a first-class learning and recreational experience in a tropical paradise.
The seminar is supported by the Wilderness Medical Society, which will provide up to 15 category 1 CME's for medical professionals. Most mornings there will be a 2 1/2-hour seminar ashore. The flotilla will then sail to a different overnight anchorage, with optional stops along the way for lunch, scuba diving, snorkeling, hiking, shopping, swimming, exploring, or just relaxing. One day will be lecture free, so that participants may explore the many islands and harbors in the area.
Sail aboard a Moorings signature crewed 46 ft or 47 ft Catamaran with two other participating couples, or charter and captain your own bareboat with friends or family. The navigation is generally line of sight, and sailing is easy in these protected waters. There is an abundance of secure moorings in the destination anchorages. The seminars will be held in open air restaurants, beach bars, and conferencing rooms. Sail Caribbean Divers will organize scuba trips at a variety of locations.
