Fortunately, there are many yachtsmen in Denmark. And irrespective of whether they have been at sea for 20 years or have just started recently, it is important with a high level of safety.
In Denmark, all yachtsmen are permitted to navigate a vessel with a hull length below 15 metres. If your boat is longer than 15 metres or it is a speedboat, you must have completed the right training programmes and have acquired the right certificates, such as a speedboat certificate.
If you are about to organise, for example, a canoeing trip, teaching of pupils or an event voyage, you have - as the organiser - the safety responsibility. The best way in which to ensure the safety is by making detailed safety instructions.
