Safetics the Sailor’s Checklist is the first essential safety guide for sailors, sponsored by French Vendée Globe winner Armel Le Cléac'h. Safetics is the first waterproof sailing guide. It is made up of check-lists, validated and recommended by sea safety experts. These simple and intuitive check-lists cover all situations on board: Preparation, Navigation, Emergency, Distress, Rescue, with a Lexicon for beginners. Its 60 rip-resistant pages inform skippers and crew alike about good practice during coastal cruising, offshore crossing or daily excursions at sea. It was while passing his pilot licence that Guillaume de Corbiac, then a confirmed skipper, had the idea to create a comprehensive security check-list, much like those used by aviators since the 1930s. The Safetics navigation guide is suitable for both sailboats and motor boats. It also contains all the regulatory information required to navigate up to 6 nautical miles from a safe haven along the French coast. It is available in French, English, Italian, and can be found at more than 300 points of sale.
Safetics has established major partnerships including with the French Sailing Federation and the Marin Breton Almanac. The nautical guide has joined the official Vendée Globe 2016-2017 collection as well as that of the 2018 Route du Rhum. It is recommended by the sea rescuers of the SNSM, the Directorate of Maritime Affairs, the Coast Guards, the Navy, the Maritime Gendarmerie, Météo France and the Maritime Medical Consultation Center.
