When a person falls into the water, she is sometimes shocked and generally has the greatest difficulty in swimming and finding one of the ladders that equip the pontoons and docks, a fortiori if she is alone. Boaters are therefore required to leave their swim ladders unmatched and easily accessible and to point them out clearly.
A port, for the sailor, is a shelter, for a child it is a playground. Be extremely vigilant especially if he can not swim: equip your threads with nets, permanently put him a lifejacket And if it’s really small, make sure it aboard your boat with a safety harness. If he can swim, have him locate the nearest scales of rescue and avoid leaving him alone: fallen between two boats, no one will see or hear him to come to rescue him.
Your bathing ladder can save a life! The bathing ladder must be accessible and not moored to get out of the water at port and anchorage.
Bra and vest are compulsory for children under 6 years and for people not knowing how to swim. Free luggage is available at the Capitainerie 24 hours a day.
Formal prohibition of cycling, scooter, skateboard or roller skating on the docks and on the pontoons.
