Description

The 16 december 1810, five signal stations (La Parata; Cavallo; Capo Corse; Sagro; La Chiappa; Pertusato) are in activity in Corsica. They are equipped with powerful radar and visual  powerful and armed by personnel of the French Navy.

In early 1987, Cavallo will be put to sleep and that of Ile Rousse will be closed, Alistro will be rebuilt and put back on activities in 1986-1987.

Beware at "Banc de Cavallo" that lies to a depth of 31 m and extends just over 1.8 MN from the Cape. When the sea is rough, it breaks sharply on the bench and you must navigate at least 3 NM from it.

En date du 16 décembre 1810, cinq sémaphores (La Parata; Cavallo; cap Corse; Sagro; La Chiappa; Pertusato) sont en activité en Corse. Ils sont équipés de matériel radar et visuel performant et armés par du personnel de la Marine Nationale.

Début 1987, Cavallo sera mis en sommeil et celui de l'Île Rousse sera fermé, Alistro sera reconstruit puis remis en activités en 1986-1987.

Attention au Banc de Cavallo qui s'étend à une profondeur de 31 m et s'étend à un peu plus de 1,8 MN du cap. Quand la mer est mauvaise, elle se brise fortement sur ce banc et il faut naviguer à au moins 3 MN de celui-ci.
