The prefecture of the neighbouring Alpes-Maritimes has warned of very strong winds along the coast on Thursday and Friday, August 10 and 11.
The prefecture has advised against nautical activities such as sailing, kayaking, and paddle boarding. Inflatable mattresses should also be avoided as they can very easily be blown out to sea.
It is also recommended that boat owners ensure that their vessels are secured to ensure that thy do not break loose from their moorings and run aground onshore. In case of distress at sea, the emergency number to call is 196.
