Safety first!

Sea-going people work together because they know the dangers of the sea only too well.
The first rescues at sea date back to the 19th century. Over the years, they were organised and improved until in 1967, the French lifeboat service, the S.N.S.M. was created. To save lives at sea and around the coast is the aim of the 7,000 volunteers at the service of seafarers and bathers.
To ensure that you make the most of the sea and all its pleasures … think about safety and be a Citizen of the Sea, responsible, helpful and respectful.
