Anyone can rent a power boat in Croatia but that doesn’t mean to say you understand how to stay safe.  The sea can be a very tiresome and frustrated beast and if you don’t take a few safety precautions to heart, you may not be safe on the sea waves.  The following are just a few simple things you may want to consider to remain safe when renting a power boat.

Power Boat in Croatia – Brush Up Your Navigation Skills

One of the first things you need to know when you want to remain safe once you’ve rented a power boat in Croatia is to understand simple nautical terms.  For instance, you need to learn about what is starboard and what is portside as well as how to use a compass to navigate ashore again.  It is simple and very basic things such as these which may very well keep you safe.  Renting a power boat is simple and staying safe is even easier.

Don’t Head Out When the Weather Is Rough

Just because you’ve hired a power boat to cruise the Croatian coastline, it doesn’t mean you have to stay out there all day.  Rough seas are no laughing matter, they can be very dangerous and if you are persistent to stay out there all day, you put yourself in serious danger.  That is why when you know the sailing conditions are poor, you don’t go out.

Don’t Stray Off Course

One of the worst things for anyone to do when they hire a power boat in Croatia would be to somehow end in the wrong place.  Straying off course can be easily done so you need to be extra vigilant and ensure you know where you are at all times.  Yes, you can still enjoy your time on the waves but you still need to be aware of your surroundings and how far you’re going out also.  If you aren’t confident being out on the open waters alone, even with friends aboard, then hire a skipper or crew.  This can be one top way to ensure you are safe.

Always Let a Boat Manager Know Where You Are Going

One of the things you need to consider doing when renting a power boat in Croatia is to ensure someone knows where you are.  Now, if you plan a day trip out to a certain part of Croatia, you need to let someone know about it.  You can tell the people you are staying with or a person at the base or even a friend or to your Sailogy consultant; and if you don’t return, they can send help.  This may sound a little crazy but in all honesty, this is a very wise step to take.  You don’t know what can happen on a boat and even if you’re good at sailing, take this extra precaution.

Chartering a power boat can be wonderful, enjoy your time on the ocean waves.
