Advices for the Crew


Useful information for a pleasant trip

Avoid seasickness

An empty stomach will lead to seasickness more easily than a full one, so tuck in before setting sail. It’s almost impossible for boating newbies to spend a long amount time below deck, never mind preparing a full meal. No one wants to have their perfect sailing holiday ruined by an aching stomach!

Wear life jackets and lifebelts

Life jackets and life belts keep you from falling over board and should be an absolutely essential piece of safety equipment on board. Before you set sail, make sure that every passenger has tried on and correctly fitted their vest. If you are traveling with children be sure to check that the vests fit them correctly.

Correct clothing and footwear

The right clothing and footwear are essential for sailing and are a no-brainer for our top ten boating safety tips. Shoes with non-slip soles are especially important for docking manoeuvres. Apart from the movement of the boat itself, ropes, cleats and other equipment can easily trip you up.

No alcohol

Stay focused on board by leaving the wine safely on dry land. Studies show that the chances of getting into a sailing accident almost double if alcohol is involved. Sun, wind and the swell of the sea can also increase the effects of alcohol drastically.

Pack a first-aid kit

A good first-aid kit is an absolute must. This includes surgical equipment as well as a good selection of medication for traveling: remedies against seasickness, pain medication, medicine for children etc.

Very important: sunscreen. Sunscreen should be worn every day, particularly if you’re traveling in sunny areas like the Mediterranean sea.

Advices for the Captain


Useful advices for every Captain

Be weather-wise

Be sure to inform yourself about the local weather conditions before setting sail. If you notice dark clouds, rough winds or sudden drops in temperature it might be time to spend a few on hours on land.

Know your sailing area

Inform yourself about potential dangers or challenges in your sailing area. Always obey navigation rules, especially traffic regulations. Stay safe by keeping a good distance to other watercrafts.

Safe speed

Always sail at a safe speed, especially in crowded areas. Stay alert at the steering wheel steer clear of large vessels that might have difficulties stopping or turning. Be respectful of buoys and other navigational aids. They ensure not only your own safety, but the safety of your fellow sailors.

Follow a float plan

Share the most important travel details of your boat holiday with friends and family. This float plan should include: the time and place of your departure, the length of your trip and the specific sailing route you will take. Other important information may include the name, addresses and telephone numbers of all your passengers as well as a description and the registration details of your boat.
