OUR COMMITMENTS

TO CONVEY A POSITIVE IMAGE AND CONTRIBUTE TO THE SUSTAINABILITY OF MY PASSION, I COMMIT TO:
  • RESPECTING INTERNATIONAL AND LOCAL REGULATIONS
    • I obey international (IMO COLREGs) and local navigation regulations
    • When required, my PWC is registered and I am able to present all papers (permit, registration card, insurance document etc.)
    • I observe and obey local age restrictions for riding my PWC
    • I do not enter any prohibited zones
    • I ride at reduced speed in harbours and strictly respect speed limits
    • I do not ride my PWC at night
    • I do not ride my PWC after consuming alcohol or drugs
  • RESPECTING THE ENVIRONMENT
    • I always refuel on land and keep my engine clean
    • I do not modify the exhaust or cooling system of my PWC
    • I limit the time spent flushing the engine to a strict minimum
    • I do not throw rubbish into the water or onto beaches
    • I respect fauna and flora, and adapt my speed when in areas with a high wildlife population
  • SHARING THE SEA
    • I respect other boats and keep away from them, especially when they are at anchor
    • I pay attention to the way I ride and keep an eye on wind direction in order to avoid any noise nuisance
    • I do not ride too close to the shore or where other people are swimming or playing
    RIDING RESPONSIBLY
    • I check the meteorological conditions before I ride
    • I am wary of off-shore winds and tidal currents
    • I ride with others because there’s safety in numbers
    • I make sure I have enough fuel and battery life before riding
    • I check the controls function as intended
    • I do not leave my PWC if it breaks down
  • RESPECTING THE FACILITIES AVAILABLE IN PORTS
    • I do not damage launching ramps or their surroundings
    • I only leave my trailer in the designated parking area
    • I respect other ramp users and wait my turn to launch my PWC
  • RIDING WITH ALL SAFETY EQUIPMENT
    • Everyone on board wears a life vest and wetsuit (bottoms)
    • I bring a towing device (anchoring point and tow rope)
    • The tether cord clip is attached to the driver’s wrist or life vest at all times, this cuts the engine ignition if the driver falls overboard
    • I bring a portable phone in a waterproof case or a hand-held VHF
    • I follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for use (gloves, glasses, footwear etc.)
