Roquebrune Anchoring Laws

2 October 2018

The Maritime Police have boarded several yachts recently and issued Masters with a summons to appear at the French Maritime Affairs office in Nice . They are applying two new local laws:

  1. Anchoring in the fish haven

  2. Anchoring in waters less than 30 metres deep 

On the Monaco and Roquebrune border (RED shaded area) a 30 metres depth limit and on the Roquebrune and Menton border (GREEN shaded area) it’s a 20 metres depth limit.

These depth related anchoring laws came out the same time as the speed restriction around Cap d’Antibes.

Yacht Job Scams on the Rise

Over the last couple of months, the PYA's Member Assistance Service (MAS) has received a number of reports from crew who have been approached by scammers offering false jobs onboard yachts.
