Mandatory documents

On board a recreational boat, the regulations set out in Division 240 require a number of documents to be carried, which vary according to the distance from a shelter.

WHAT DO YOU NEED TO HAVE IN ALL CASES?

- The administrative documents concerning the boat: a traffic card or a charter certificate and, if applicable, a rental contract with the special verification register supplied by the rental company attached.

- For a motorboat: the coastal and possibly offshore licence of the skipper and the persons likely to take the helm.

- If the boat is equipped with a VHF: the radio licence and the CRR of the skipper if the boat has to approach international waters.

IN A BASIC ZONE LESS THAN 2 MILES FROM A SHELTER

In addition, there must be a way to find out the tide information (time and height) for the navigation area. This can be found in the Coastal or Yachting & Regulation Marine Blocks, but the NV-Charts chart packs also provide tide information.

IN COASTAL AREAS WITHIN 6 MILES OF A SHELTER, ADD

- Chart(s) of the area you are sailing in: Picksea experts recommend that you have several charts at different scales so that you have comprehensive information on the risks, buoyage and probes.

- COLREG (RIPAM): This is the International Collision Regulations (the marine code). It is possible to have it all, as in the Marine or Yachting & Regulations block, but a summary in the form of a descriptive sheet, possibly self-adhesive, is also acceptable.

- The description of the maritime buoyage, which it is also possible to have a summary in the form of a descriptive sheet, possibly self-adhesive

IN SEMI-OFFSHORE OR OFFSHORE AREAS, ADD

- A logbook, in which all the important information of the navigation will be reported: skipper, passengers, departure, destination, course and route followed, weather and sea conditions as well as all the important events during the navigation. Picksea offers several models from Bloc Marine or Vagnon.

- The light book which details all the lights (rhythm, colour, period, ...) of a navigation area. It can be found either in a specific SHOM book or in the Bloc Marine Atlantique or Méditerranée.
