Since there is no legislation for the safety equipment on board
in Germany, it is up to each person to equip their boat. Useful equipment recommendations and lists are frequently published in water sports magazines. Additional suggestions can be found in the safety rules / regulations
for offshore racing, published by the International Sailing Federation (ISAF). The rules
can be downloaded in the download section
of SVB. On over 100 pages you can find the definitions for how yachts and boats should be equipped for various sea areas and to be able to participate in a regatta. You will quickly realize, that no large-scale yacht leaves the yard seaworthy in accordance with the ISAF rules.
So most yachts are missing basic configurations, for example: storm jib
, life raft
, safety lines on deck
, AIS - receivers
and AIS - transponders
, a spare anchor
, reserve position lamps
and a lot more.
Finally, however, every skipper is responsible for the safety
of the ship and the crew and he therefore has to inform himself about what is required and needed in their operating area.
