Nautical charts

The Picksea crew offers a wide selection of nautical charts to help you find the right set of charts for your coastal, offshore or even transatlantic sailing. We have selected several publishers, starting with the SHOM (Service Hydrographique et Océanique de la Marine) which is the official organization that carries out all the surveys for the realization of the maritime charts. You will also find the charts of NV-Charts who edit very complete packs by navigation area including several charts at different scales with also the digital charts usable on any smartphone, tablet or PC. We have selected Navicarte plastic charts for those who practice light sailing and nautical activities such as kayaking and finally the Imray charts because they are very well known in the world of boating.

Boating licence code

A boating licence is compulsory to steer a motorboat of more than 6 horsepower, whether at sea or in inland waters. It should be noted that this obligation is not necessary for a sailboat even equipped with a motor, however it is strongly recommended to pass it because 95% of the program also concerns sailing. You will find on Picksea, all the necessary books and materials to prepare your boating licence whether it is the coastal licence and its offshore extension or the river licence to navigate on canals and inland waterways. You can also prepare for the maritime radiotelephone code called the Radiotelephone Operator's Restricted Certificate(RRC). All the boat licence codes offered by Vagnon have been written by Picksea experts who are also trainers of boat school instructors and authors of many other books for Vagnon.

Compulsory document for boating

On board a pleasure boat, the regulations defined in Division 240 require a certain number of documents to be carried, the presence of which varies according to the distance from a shelter: basic, coastal or semi-offshore navigation. This mandatory documentation on board includes the nautical chart(s) of the area visited, a tide book, a description of the buoyage or a summary on a sticky note, a description of the RIPAM or a summary on a sticky note, a logbook and a light book. All these compulsory documents can be found in books such as Plaisance & Réglementation for coastal navigation and Bloc Marine Atlantique or Méditerranée for offshore and deep-sea navigation.
