Safety First When on a Sailing Yacht in Athens
To ensure safety on a sailing boat, first, you need to know Right-of-Way (ROW) Rules to avoid collisions with other boats. There should be enough life vests for every member of the crew; fire extinguishers; horn, whistle or bell; flares; radar reflector, etc. Make sure you and your crew wear a personal flotation device and children should wear them all the time. Do not panic in case of emergency. Using a safety harness in rough weather or when sailing alone is smart. It is recommended to sail with the VHF radio turned on to monitor for distress calls. You should beware of sunburns, sun strokes, and hypothermia, in case someone falls overboard. Take necessary precautions to make your sailing holidays in Athens fun!
