We aim to raise the level of safety in small ports, with the help of local municipalities, port owners, voluntary maritime rescue stations, boat-owners, yacht clubs, service providers, habitants & visitors.

Our co-partners (Estonian Voluntary Maritime Rescue Orgnisation, Finnish Lifeboat Institution & Swedish Sea Rescue Society) will participate in various ways, be it SAR-exercises, sharing info. In return they will obtain project results first-hand.


The project implements following:

jointly survey & map current situation of safety in small ports

make needed development plans

carry out needed investments in a few pilot small ports

organise maritime rescue trainings

hold joint SAR exercises for different target groups

draw up & implement a basic safety quality sign

participate in marketing activities of pilot small ports


This all will lead to improved services of small ports. Higher standards and basic safety quality sign will give reliability for sailors / boat tourists & will attract more visitors to the region.
