All yachts are equipped with a life jacket and a harness for everyone on board. We leave it up to you to decide when personal safety equipment should be worn. We suggest that children who are not strong swimmers should not be allowed in a dinghy without a life jacket or buoyancy aid, and they should wear a buoyancy aid or harness when on deck. Children under the age of 16 years are not permitted to operate an outboard engine without a supervising adult in the dinghy. Children’s lifejackets for 4 years and above are provided subject to availability but parents must supply their own life jackets for children under 4. All clients are encouraged to wear a life jacket in the dinghy at night.


For advice on vaccinations please refer to your family doctor.
