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.

  • <h2>GPS is a great navigation aid. However, it is important to know how to use it and to identify the risks in order to better prevent them.</h2> <p>Learn how to use all the GPS functions, and at a glance on your screen you will see where you are and where you are going, how long it will take you to get there and what time you will be in port. As your boat progresses, the various displays, figures and graphs show the constantly changing data, which is both fascinating and reassuring.</p> <p>As an everyday tool, GPS has become commonplace for road traffic or nature walks. Its nautical use, however, remains the most sophisticated of all, along with air navigation. At sea, a lack of settings, a handling error or a wrong reading can result in a shipwreck, with much more serious consequences than getting lost in the open country. Marine sense - a mixture of thoughtful analysis of all the information on board, observation of the maritime environment and constant sensory monitoring - consists first and foremost in never relying on a single instrument, even if it is as precise and magical as the GPS. When the reefs appear in front of the bow, it is too late to wonder if the position displayed on the screen is really accurate...</p> <p>This special edition is aimed at beginners as well as those who already use a GPS on a regular basis but who do not check its correct operation, rarely pay attention to its settings and hardly use its advanced functions...</p> <h2>Features</h2>

  • <h2>Discover all the pretty spots along the 280 miles from Marseille to Barcelona!</h2> <p>This is forgetting that until the approach of the Etang de Berre, the high relief shoreline is often steep, just like on the western shore of the Etang, and this long beach is in fact cut by numerous graus, these entrances to ponds which give access to sites which are not lacking in attractiveness, such as Aigues Mortes and its old ramparts, Sète and the small oyster-farming ports of the Thau lagoon, Agde and its black lava cathedral, or Leucate and its vast lagoon without forgetting Gruissan where a picturesque canal gives access to the old village in concentric circles. </p> <p>After St Cyprien, without any transition, the sand gives way to the rocks of the Pyrenees. Collioure at the foot of the Templar castle is a real postcard setting and Cerbère almost a mountain port. Once past the border, you come to Cap Creus, an extremely wild coastline, accessible only by rare goat paths, with jagged rocks drawing tiny coves in an astonishing variety of coloured rocks that announce the reddish rocks of the Costa Brava with its steep slopes covered with pine woods. This is a far cry from the image of straight beaches lined with tall buildings that characterise the Spanish coast south of Blanés. Even the fishing ports are not lacking in charm with their ramblas lined with small, typically Catalan restaurants.  </p> <h2>Features</h2>

  • <h2>Sea Cards Packs for the Mediterranean Area</h2><p>The nv-charts are characterized by fine contours and easy to distinguish colour graduations of the depth lines: turquoise for coral reefs, red for the 2-metre line and blue for the 5-metre zones. Presented in a practical and user-friendly format (A3 closed and A2 open), a thick plastic envelope protects the charts, making them easy to store. The importance of a good graphic representation of the topography when navigating the Mediterranean is essential.<br /><br />Well-marked rivers, towns and street maps all contribute to a clear overview of the islands' waterfront facilities. Red numbered waypoints with coordinates based on WGS 84 allow mariners to navigate with their GPS instruments. Heights and depths are shown in the internationally recognized metre format. Large-scale approaches and land contour markings simplify entry into anchorages.</p><h2><span style="color:#ff0000;">Picksea is Premium Reseller of NV-Charts</span></h2><h2>Features of NV-Charts Packs - Mediterranean Zone</h2>
