For safety reasons, smoking is limited on board. The skipper will inform you where and when it will be possible.
Baggage: The baggage carried on board must be limited and essential, in foldable bags to allow stowage.Each participant is the exclusive custodian of its objects and personal effects and will be personally responsible in case of theft, loss or damage.

It is also advisable to bring: beach clothing, long pants and jersey for the evening, light windbreaker (K Way), sunglasses, mask and fins (for snorkelers).
Use of fresh water on board. In naturalistic-sporting vacation where there is no docking in the port, the availability of fresh water is determined. Although the boat is equipped with large tanks and a water maker, the quantity that can be consumed is limited. Guests are therefore advised not to waste water on board to avoid having to change the itinerary to stock up on water. For this reason and for practicality, the shower is done outside with the “sailor’s shower”.
Use of equipment: The use of equipment on board and of the boat is available to guests under the total supervision of the skipper, i.e. the boat and its equipment CANNOT be used independently by guests. In particular, the use of the tender without the presence of the skipper is not permitted.
