Levels of storm warning


If the storm warning system is on basic level, the strongest gusts of wind in the following hours are not expected to exceed 40-45 km/h. In this case, the lights are off.


In case of first level storm warning, wind is expected to be stronger than 45 km/h, however, it will not exceed 60 km/h.The lights of the storm warning system flash 45 times per minute. In this case, it is forbidden to swim and to use boats or any other water sports equipment further than 500 meters from the bank. Thus, it is forbidden to fish the 550 m distance on the southern bank.


In case of second level storm warning, stormy wind – over 65 km/h – is expected. The lights of the storm warning system flash 90 times per minute. In this case, they indicate that the storm is going to arrive soon. It is forbidden to travel by boat or any other water sports equipment (except for sailing boats). Those who violate the rule behave irresponsibly and risk their life. In these cases, sanctions described in the competition rule enter into force.
