I was prepared I have a licence and ICC, Boat is registered.

Thanks for the links and info.

One more thing: i don't have a trailer, i guess its quite easy to launch the boat from a beach but how do you lauch the boat from a quay (?) or boat jetty (?), first attach the outboard ? Or attach the outboard once the boat is in the water ?

If you have wheels on it or use a dolly then engine on first would be my option.

you will damage your boat trying to move it. Do yourself a favor and buy transom wheels (you will need to drill holes in transom). I recommend you carry extra spark plugs and a plug removal tool along with the other stuff. be very mindful of wind speed 13mph for is is the limit. i do not go out anything past 13mph wind speed. If your worried about your outboard falling off, You can tie a string in the holes after tightening to ensure it will not get lose and fall off

That's a very specific limit you've set yourself! conditions depend on a lot more than wind.

The chop usually gets pretty nasty around my neck of the woods past 13mph. I am no pro nor am i a weather man. Just basing it on past experiences

You should check with the French Coast Guard to see what there regulations are.
Every Coast Guard has a check list of required and suggested items to use while boating.
Try and stay out of the shipping channels if there are any where you are going.
Even if it is not a requirement you will need some type of horn and navigation lights just to be safe.
I always error on the side of caution
