Immediately call the emergency services for the country of the waters you are sailing in, and follow the emergency procedure.
If you are an EU citizen you do not need a visa to travel within the European Union. If you want to travel outside the EU or you are not an EU citizen, you should look into the entry requirements for your chosen destination at least two months before travelling to allow enough time for your documentation to be processed. Always make sure your passport is still valid for a period of six months.
Especially before travelling to tropical areas, ask your doctor about the necessary vaccinations and precautions. Consult your doctor around six months before departure as some vaccinations must be administered several times. You can take a look under our medical requirements section to find out more.

Sailing is not an expensive sport, unless you choose to race at the highest level! You don´t need to have your own boat to sail. Rent a boat. There are so many different types of boat, there will be one or more that suit you well. Once you have a little experience you will now what type of sailing you want to do. Renting a boat is more affordable than ever. If you´re going on summer vacation with your friends or family, the cost of sailing during the same time will usually be significantly less. When you divide the total amount of boat rent with number of persons on boat the cost drops to 150 - 300 EUR per person per week. Cheaper than you thought, right?

It is a small, daily charge that is stated per person per day (for example, 1 EUR per person per day) and is paid at the marina to the charter company. The amount will differ by country.
