BREXIT

So, the General Election in the UK has returned a BREXIT Government, which means the UK will leave the EU on 31st January 2020. Brits will become 'third Country' when visiting Europe. We will only be able to spend 90 in any 1800 days in Schengen waters. For the record, I voted to stay in the EU and gutted that we will now be out of it.

For those that it is relevant to - what plans do you have? How will you handle it all?

my home port of falmouth does not even have a customs and immigration,officer/office,nearest is 90 miles away in plymouth
similar situation in many european ports so how they are even going to deal with the tens of thousands of cross channel yacht traffic checking in and out is beyond me.

Re: BREXIT

We wish our friends from the island all the best after BREXIT, hopefully a clean one with no strings attached. You loose the EU, but win the world and independency, hopefully less stupid regulations and financial transfers and you can kick your politicians out when they pass laws against your interest, that does not work in the EU any more.

Don't worry about the sailing in the EU waters, we have more to loose when you go, you will be always welcome, and there will be solutions for free movement.

Now you are back in the driver seat, take care!

UK VAT/duty paid boats,returning to europe will soon be eligible to pay import duty again on their value in europe.
UK boats normally resident in the EU will, if they return to the uk become liable for uk import duty

private health insurance will also be needed for uk citizens in europe,which will be extortionate for anybody with pre-existing conditions...diabetes,epilepsey,special needs etc.
fines and deportation for anybody deemed working illegally,or overstaying.

just about every marine business in the uk producing a product,receives EU
funding of some sort currently,as do many of the underfunded regions in the uk.

That 'Funding' as you call it is just a small percentage of the so called Membership Fee..
17 Billion for 2019, less the 4Billion rebate won by Maggie Thatcher, so it cost us 13 Billion this year for what..???
This Funding is just like a Drug Dealer giving his Pusher back a few quid after collecting the take..
Brexit Rocks.. ������������

Re: BREXIT

It will be interesting to see the import duties on all the French built and all of European built boats. And last I heard there is still that Irish backstop issue. Brexit still has issues to work out.

Re: BREXIT

UK was a n empire with colonies, eventually they fight and got independent even it was better to stay with the empire for some, independency allow them own progress, look at canada, australia, india and many others. UK become a colony of the EU for some decades and now is struggling to free from the chains.

Stop whining and start celebrating.

Taxes and regulation will be home made in the future and you can decide by elections on them freely.

Reality is...... Brexit hasn't happened yet. IF and I say IF it does, we still have time for getting our boats in order.
