I took the pic I tried to upload with an iPhone 13 pro.

Unfortunately I‘m no digital specialist.

Hi Alicat!

Thanks for your input! You mean the pic folder in Windows 11, or the pic folder in the Foto-App on the iPhone?

Hi Guys!

Thanks for your comments!

Just at the moment the real problem is my multifunction crew who is very shy of coldness and rain.

I always tell her that surely it will not come so bad she thinks…..

Of course a two year/season trip would be much better and we thougt about this in fact.

Two points let us hesitate until now.

1. We are afraidmof the English Custum restrictions for foreigners after Brexit.

2. The experiences during the last years showed us that after a six month trip with 100-150 h and 1500-2000 nm

there are always some repairs and services to be done and we have great trust in our french boatyard, Beneteau Dealer with good staff where we during the last five yaers always got a perfect service for an adequate price.

Stefan
Hopefully you won’t have any breakages, but plenty of Beneteau Antares in the UK - and a Scottish Beneteau dealer with full engineering services at the beautiful Largs Yacht Haven in the Clyde - Beneteau Dealer - Boat Sales Scotland | DDZ Marine.

Hi Dino!

Perfect! It works!

This is the Chris Craft 40“ 1953 and the Glas runabout I mentioned before.

Once again many thanks for your help!

Wish you a good night!

Cordially! Stefan

Hi Stefan, no I was thinking on the built in option on the iPhone - I have a XR
when you go to post a pic on the forum:

Select Photo Library and then Options

Back to the main topic, trip planning Normandy to Ireland

New requierements due to Brexit.

May 2022 we started in Barneville-Carteret/Normandy and „checked in“ in St.Peter Port/Guernsey.

The HM gave us a form to fill in for the customs, one sheet we threw into a letterbox on the entrance of the guest pontoon, the other one, I think it was the pink, we kept in the boat documents folder aboard. In Falmouth Marina a large grey Customs Cruiser moored beside us at the guest pontoon and two young officers checked the pink form from Guernsey Customs. After some nice smalltalk they left us and were pleased with our documents.

Afterwards we travelled 3 1/2 months along the southcoast from Isle of Scilly to Portsmouth without any further control or trouble with the officials.

My question is, did we have luck in 2022, or is it ok to it equal this year again?

I read that normally foreigners must be make a call to the UK Customs in advance or fill in an online-form.

We have never done So.

What do you think about this item?

Thanks in advance for your answers!

Yes you need to submit an online form before arriving in the UK - easy enough, particularly if you register your vessel beforehand - Sailing a pleasure craft that is arriving in the UK

Also needed when leaving the UK.

Note that the Channel Isles are not formally part of the UK so have their own rules.

Yes, but .......
From the Government publication you reference:

Arriving in Great Britain​

You must tell HMRC if your pleasure craft is arriving in Great Britain (England, Scotland and Wales) from anywhere outside Great Britain including the Channel Islands, but excluding Northern Ireland.
Civil penalties can be issued for non-compliance with the customs reporting procedures.

Arriving in Northern Ireland​

You must tell HMRC if your pleasure craft is arriving in Northern Ireland from anywhere other than Great Britain including the Channel Islands, but excluding the Isle of Man.
You do not need to report passenger or crew details if arriving from Ireland into Northern Ireland.

Arriving from the Isle of Man into Great Britain or Northern Ireland

You do not need to report vessels travelling between Great Britain and the Isle of Man and Northern Ireland and the Isle of Man.
So just miss out England and Wales. Once you have passed through Northern Ireland you are home free! (Or maybe not - someone else will be along soon)

Dear All!

First of alll please excuse my bad english!

We are a German Couple in retirement. Our Motoboat Beneteau Antares 9,80 is lying in Barneville-Careret/Normandie, in opposite of the Channel Islands.

After travelling to the Isles of Scilly in 2022 and visiting Guggenheim-Mueum in Bilbao last year, we plan to go „for a Guinness to Dublin“ this year.

I‘ ve been reading MBY, PBO and Classic Boats for years and also followed the YBM Forum and I love the British yachting culture very much.

In my oppinion the forum is one of the best I ever read and I got member some days before.

I hope you can give me a little support for planning our this year trip.

My first question is if anybody knows if we can get the blue CampinGaz-bottles our Beneteau is equipped with, round the Irish Sea und possibly in Scotland?

Another question is if somebody can give me an information to plan the Menai-Street Passage which is said to be bery treacherous.

I‘ m sure some more questions will come up and I say many thanks in advance for your support!

If we can give some advice for Brittany and the French Atlantic coast until Laredo Northspain d‘ont hesitate to ask!

Cordially! Stefan + Regine
We can normally get Campinggaz cylinders in Ireland and in Scotland, but we now carry a spare third after suffering Gaz distribution problems 2 years ago - also a small electric hob for marina use.

The best way to get to Dublin is from the end of Wales at Milford Haven then up the east Irish Coast from say Kilmore Quay, to Arklow, to Wicklow, to Dun Laoghiere and onward. Its sheltered from prevailing westerlies by the land and has some shelter from easterlies by off shore banks

Going along west welsh coast is crazy unless you want to see it specifically and means long exposed passages or long detours into harbour. The route up the welsh west coast takes you through 3 of the 11 most serious tidal races in the UK - quite fun in some ways but a pointless challenge if you just want to get to Dublin.

Good Evening!

Many thanks for the explanations about the Welsh and the Irish coasts!

Our motivation is mainly to spent half a year aboard and travel along unknown European shores.

The Guinness in Dublin is only the title of our this year summer plans.

IMG_6098.jpeg

This is a first sketch about our way, but until now we didn‘t seriously know if the long way is to make without stress in about 4-5 months.

With the information of helpful members like you we collect piece by piece information to see if all makes a sense.

The way is the goal, as like last year along the Biscay to Northspain.

Good night and thanks again!

Stefan
