Les conseils de la SNSM sur les grandes traversées en voile

The Société Nationale de Sauvetage en Mer (SNSM or National Lifeboat Institution) is a French charity that exists to save people in distress at sea or near the coast, on a voluntary basis. Its principle resources come from contributions made by the general public and by private partners.
Sea and coastal rescue constitutes the main activity of the SNSM. However, the organisation is also involved in training new generations of rescuers as well as raising awareness among people of the risks related to the sea. For more information click here!
