Safety out on the water?
Varen doe je Samen' will be present at the HISWA in Lelystad from 4 to 8 September 2019. At the 'Sailing Together' booth, advice and tips regarding safety on the water are key. During the event, attention will be paid to the rules of navigation and signposting on the water, among other things. We invite visitors to talk about (in)safe situations on the water by means of physical (navigation) charts. Precisely in order to learn from these situations, we also have the possibility to view and deliver information digitally. There are also several interactive quizzes, where you can win great prizes for those who know the rules of the trade best. There will also be informative, regional film images of safe navigation on the water and a short informative interactive presentation. If you have a question about a specific (safety) situation on the water, please visit the stand.
The campaign 'You do it together!'
Being able to sail safely is very important for recreational and commercial shipping. In order to increase safety on the Dutch major waterways, 'Varen doe je Samen' (Sailing together!) has been launched. This is a national cooperation project involving provinces, the Directorate-General for Public Works and Water Management, the Koninklijke BLN-Schuttevaer, the water sports sector and the Association of Water Boards, among others. In addition to information on safety, precautionary measures and new legislation and regulations, possible dangerous situations are described. Booklets have been made with safe advice routes.
