March 15th, 2017 the Marina Information Network was officially launched with the signing of a charter.
Our coast guard partner the Maritime and River Police initiated this project and signed the charter together with the governor of West-Flanders, the local police and fifteen yacht clubs from Ostend, Nieuwpoort, Blankenberge and Zeebruges. The information network ensures more efficient communication by means of a central hotline. This means that there will be a swifter response in case of theft or smuggling and thus contributes to safer marinas. This network is a first for the province of West-Flanders and should be fully operational in a few months time.
