Consideration for other boats and bathers
When you go cruising you aren’t the only one at sea. Just as it’s important to protect the marine environment, it’s also important to respect others, starting by helping others whenever asked to do so. You never know what’s going to happen at sea and help can be needed at the most unexpected times. If your boat is medium or large, respect smaller boats and pay careful attention to floating objects and bathers. Avoid unnecessary noise, as it’s bound to bother other people and cause them to turn against the boating sector.
You should always observe the speed limit, particularly when approaching the entrance to coves and when motoring inside ports. Please note that in these cases the maximum speed is 3 knots. And, as always, be prudent and make sure you check the day’s weather forecast before you go out in your boat..
