Water Safety

France - Capbreton - 01.09.2013



In September 2013, in Capbreton, in the Landes region of south-western France, local schoolchildren — from 5 to 11 years old — took part in a day of swimming and water safety training in a pool and in the sea organised by the Capbreton lifesaving club.
 
Some fifty volunteers took part along with swimmer Fabien Gilot, who won two gold medals at the last world swimming championships, and the world record-breaking freedriver Pierre Frolla.
 
The Foundation also donated four rescue boards to coastal lifesaving clubs in Capbreton and Hossegor. These large boards are used in sea rescue operations.
 
Fifty have been made at the request of H.S.H. Princess Charlene for Her Foundation and are distributed according to specific requirements.
