We all know that accidents happen at sea. But to avoid things becoming worse, the most important thing is to be prepared to react, as well being able to inform the emergency services.
In concrete terms, all you have to do is press the emergency button on your beacon and the chain of emergency services will be set in motion, as the boat’s position is automatically sent via the Inmarsat satellite network. The subscription (excluding the beacon) costs 29 euros per month and in addition allows geo-location of the boat and reception of weather forecasts.
