SAFETY AT ION CLUB KARPATHOS
As there is side-offshore to offshore wind and the bay is open towards the open sea, there is a constant baywatch during opening hours. The safety team is ready at all times to attend rescues with the rescue boat and are able to act immediately in case of any emergency. Our station in Gun Bay is also equipped with GPS Safety system, which you can use at any time, we recommend especially during the high wind days. Nonetheless, we would like to underline that the spot at Gun Bay has offshore winds, therefore every windsurfer should act with caution to prevent dangerous situations. Offshore winds are risky and demand that you should assess your sailing abilities honestly before going out in such conditions.
Chicken bay is a partially shallow bay which provides a very safe environment. The bay is a U-shaped lagoon protected by land. As there is offshore wind as in Gun Bay, it is necessary to stay cautious. In need of a rescue, there is always a rescue boat and the team ready to react and help to bring windsurfers back to the beach.
