Communication

A diversity of communication tools and content is available to inform and promote safe boating.

Website

For stakeholders: numericanal.eu
For professional skippers and for boaters: safeboating.eu

This website is being developed and will be maintained by Waterrecreatie Nederland, and will contain and share all communication means on safety.

Examples

www.fluviacarte.com (FR)
www.varendoejesamen.nl (NL) Improves safety on Dutch waterways by increasing awareness among the waterway users through education
www.ebanet.org European Boatmen’s Association (EBA) exchanges technical-nautical information in order to improve and enhance the sector’s professional standards
rnli.org Royal National Lifeboat Institution is the charity that saves lives at sea as well as on some inland waterways. RNLI helps to educate children of all ages to learn about water safety

Safety junctions

Communicating potential dangerous crossings and instructions how to cross them contributes to nautical safety. The earlier mentioned inventories of safety junctions and instructions to boaters and professional skippers how to cross them will be shared with project partners (and via their distribution channels to their target groups).

Example

varendoejesamen.nl (NL) 100 junctions & instructions in the Netherlands

Articles and press

Promoting nautical safety is being communicated in a variety of online and offline magazines, newspapers, etc., aimed at boaters and professional skippers as well as general target groups (not related to nautical activities.)

Examples

Varen doe je samen!’ (Metro, 19 May 2015)

Safe and sound (Maritime by Holland Magazine, March 2014)

Boat shows & clinics

Boat shows are an excellent opportunity to reach lots of boaters with safety information and information about clinics they can attend.
Clinics for boaters and skippers can be given at bridge and lock control centers, harbours and marinas, and aboard pleasure boats.
