- You must not sail under the effects of alcohol.
- Stay within 50 metres on another vessel, floating artifact , submarine signs, bunkers of other boats.
- Never navigate alone. Always let someone know where you are going and how long you will be there.
- If you are in trouble, do not leave your boat. Never try to swim to the shore.
- Navigation is forbidden in the commercial ports except to go from the sea to a marina installed inside or vice versa and at a speed not exceeding 3 knots
- You must avoid navigation in the access channels to the ports, in the anchoring areas , and in the areas of high concentration of boats.
In order to guarantee the safety of the beach users and especially of bathers. The authorities have established protection zones generally marked out on the beach.
These zones will be understood to be located inside a coastal strip , parallel to the coast , 200 metres wide, in which navigation is prohibited or conditioned at a speed of 3 knots where there is no buoying.
The zones are:
- Reserved exclusively for the bathers.
- Prohibited to all water sports.
- The access channels for windsurfing, water skiing, jet skis, sail boats, motor boats etc are prohibited areas for bathing and intended to give watersport users access to the beach.
Remember that in properly marked bathing areas sports and recreational navigation are prohibited as is the use of any type of boat powerd by sail or engine. The launching or stranding of boats must be done through properly marked channels.
In the sections of the coast that are not sign posted, it will be understood that the bathing are occupies the area adjacent to the coast with a width of 200 metres. Within there unmarked areas, you should not sail at a speed greater than 3 knots. Nautical vessels may only navigate this area to access the beach perpendicularly, taking extreme precautions and at a speed of less than 3 knots.
All floating vessels or devices, whatever their means of propulsion, that leave or go to the beaches, must do so perpendicular to land, navigating with caution and always less than 3 knots from 200 metres to the coast or vice versa. If there are marked access channels these will be used compulsorily.
Remember that it is forbidden to anchor in the access channels to the ports, coves and beaches (if marked out) and inside the properly marked out bathing areas. You must respect these areas at all times, both for your safety and that of others.
