Nautic Lib, a self-service system of watersport materials, will be tested this summer across Brittany !

As part of the European project CAPITEN, a prototype of self-service stand-up paddles and bodyboards will be tested all summer on beaches and inland water areas in Brittany.

This innovative concept is, in its experimental shape, a road trailer adapted into several lockers offering a range of watersport materials via an online booking platform to access the materials selected in less than three clicks.

For the test a person will be  on site to collect the opinions of the potential end users in order to improve the prototype for a broader deployment at the end of the European project.

The Nautic Lib is free during its testing phase, it is primarily aimed at young people aged 13 to 18 to make the practice more accessible to this audience willing to try without committing itself.

In its final development, the Nautic Lib could be associated to a marine leisure centre, beach bar, campsite or any other touristic infrastructure, the ultimate objective remaining  an easy self-service access to complement existing offers or create an offer on site where no other material rental facilities exist.

The Nautic Lib truck will be at “St Gildas de Rhuys” (56) 70 route du Rohu, near the Goh-Velin beach from the 22/07 to the 11/08, then will be roaming several sites:

  • At La Cale in Pont-Réan, 35580 Guichen, from the afternoon of the 12/08 to the 17/08 inluded.
  • At Feins from the morning of the 18/08 to the 21/08 included.
  • At Brehec from the afternoon of the 23/08 to the 26/08 included.
  • At Telgruc-sur-mer from the afternoon of the 27/08 to the 01/09 included. 

The tour will close from September 5th to 9th in Brest during the Finist’Air Sailing event.
