In detail

Physical condition of participants

  • On land you have to consider that the walking is at a good level. 
  • We are on a modest-sized boat that is sometimes shaken. On board, you have to take steep stairs, the cabins are equipped with bunk beds. 
  • We therefore emphasize the importance of everyone having a minimum physical condition (being able to climb a 3m vertical ladder is a good benchmark)
