The Cruising Association’s HQ is in Limehouse, on the tidal Thames in east London

The key Brexit issues affecting the sailing community have been addressed in a recently held Brexit Special Webinar entitled “Brexit Issues for Cruisers”, the contents of which was researched and presented by members of the Cruising Association (CA) Regulations and Technical Services group (RATS).

Over 300 members of the CA from 13 different countries tuned into the webinar on Saturday 5 December and there has since been huge demand for the webinar to be made available to the public.
The CA and RATS have now shared the webinar publicly, excluding the Q&A segment which attracted around 150 questions and is available exclusively on the CA members’ version.
The webinar programme focuses on the main difficulties facing cruising sailors as a result of Brexit:
  • Introduction: Robin Baron (Chair)
  • People issues including immigration and Schengen 90 days: Trevor Page
  • Vessel issues including VAT: Roger Bickerstaff
  • CA Brexit webpages: Robin Baron
A PDF of the Powerpoint presentation slides has also been included on the CA’s public website pages. https://www.theca.org.uk/news/rats/brexit_webinar_video

CA President, Julian Dussek, said, “At a time when the Brexit arrangements are still unknown it was a delight to watch the RATS Brexit webinar. The complexities and implications of our leaving the EU were explained with great clarity.
“I am extremely grateful for the enormous amount of work that RATS has been doing for the CA, both in compiling the Brexit pages on the website and for putting together the webinar. I am now much more knowledgeable about what I will have to do next year, and what not to do.”
