ACCESS AND ACCOMMODATION
SECURITY AND RELIEF
We are accompanied by a professional security team (GPS France) to regulate entries under the Chap’ and ensure the safety of participants under the structure from the beginning to the end of the evening. We are also surrounded by a professional rescue team that has a specific structure at the entrance of the tent to treat all possible interventions.
FLOW OF DRINKS
Very few interventions of the medical team are related to alcoholism, less than 10 at each evening out of 2,000 student entries. We ask the Town Hall of all our ports of reception to issue us only a License II that authorizes us to sell fermented drinks such as beer or cider. We do not sell strong alcohol, which would be incompatible with a sporting event of this magnitude. The purpose of this license is only to give a friendly character to the event.
TRANSPORT FOR EVENINGS
At the end of each evening, we propose to our participants a system of night shuttles in order to bring them to the Chap’ and to bring them back to their lodging after. Many courses are planned and serve the majority of accommodation in the area of the port of reception. These shuttles include approximately 1,500 users. On the other hand, many participants sleep directly on their boat at the port and our organizing team escorts them to the pontoons.
Each year, the organizing team works in close collaboration with the risk prevention services of the host city. This is how we set up a system to raise the awareness of alcohol-related hazards among participants, and we offer breathalyzers at the end of the evenings.
