This Thursday morning, the 90 competitors in the Mini Transat EuroChef had to attend the compulsory safety briefing
A complete 2-hour review organised by Race Management in collaboration with the Flottille 24F from the Lann-Bihoué aeronautical base, it gave the skippers the skinny on every aspect of safety in an event like this. Safety equipment, beacons, dedicated VHF channels, alert procedures, methods for detecting boats, ranges, means put in place for retrieving a sailor who has gone overboard… everything was examined in detail. Indeed, though the race is run without any modern means of communication, the fleet remains under high surveillance whatever happens!
