Welcome To SailingMedical.org
Are you a sailor who will be going offshore or an explorer going to a remote place? This site will help you. The service was set up by Dr. Steve Rakkar M.D. to help sailors cope with medical emergencies when no medical help is nearby. It is meant to be an emergency service by sailors for sailors in need but can be used by other travelers. These include mountaineers, campers, wilderness adventurers.
It does not replace professional medical care and it is only for help in the wilderness/offshore setting. It is meant for those with emergencies in the wilderness or the sea. Dr. Rakkar guides attendees in the management of emergency situations in a practical way. Dr. Rakkar is based in Dallas, Texas and conducts the seminars in Dallas. Supplies are sold in a medical bag and medications are given as a courtesy at no charge
Dr. Steve Rakkar M.D. will hear out your personal sailing history/experience to tailor his message specifically to you.
This seminar has been well thought out and is tailored to provide you and your group with hand-on training that’s practical and actually fun.
At the seminar you’ll have the option to purchase a medical gear bag with contents in excess of over $3,000 for a fraction of the price it would cost individually.
