Sailing in Saint Florent

Sail safely and serenely.

Safety at sea is everyone's business. For a successful experience, here are the rules to follow:

Before leaving the port:

  • Together we tour the boat and take stock of the situation.
  • Pay attention to the advice of the Corsica Nautic team.
  • Check the condition of the propeller and the base of your engine.
  • Take photos of the boat, note the number of cushions and make sure they are securely attached.
  • Check the fuel level.

You leave the port:

  • Respect the speed limit of 3 knots to the harbour exit, then 5 knots to the red marking (port side) 300 metres past the harbour.

You are in the sea:

  • It is forbidden to sail with the awning unfolded. And don't hang on to it when getting back on the boat (twisted sun rate = 500 euros charged).
  • You are responsible for everyone on board: check that child under ten are wearing their lifejackets.
  • Lifejackets and safety equipment are stored in one of the lockers.
  • To avoid accidents, do not sail along the sea within 300 metres of the coastline.

You are approaching the beaches:

  • Reduce your speed gradually.
  • Are you dragging a buoy, water skis or a wakeboard? You must signal with an orange flame. It is also strictly forbidden to drag within 300 metres of the coast.

You are at anchor:

  • Il est interdit de « beacher » directement les bateaux sur le sable.
  • You should always anchor with your back to the beach.
  • Be careful not to interfere with other boaters, and check that no visible rocks are nearby.
  • Check that the depth under the boat is at least 1 meter.
  • After dropping the anchor with a length of chain twice the size of the boat, backtrack a little to tighten the chain and anchor yourself properly in the sand.
  • Before leaving the boat, check its balance.

Before 4 p.m.:

  • Please text or call us before you return to the port, which should be no later than 6 pm.
  • Fill up with petrol before returning the boat and keep the receipt.

Do you have a question when you are at sea or on the beach? Don't hesitate to call us.
