I am bringing this post back up, because there is a question I have on this registry process, that I would very much like to know...
If you register your boat under a flag that is not your own nationality, how does it work with the skipper
qualifications? Do they have to comply with your nationality... or do they have to comply with the boats flag?
Of course, I have a reason to ask this:
I have a 20nm limit in my Portuguese coastal licence...
doesn't require any skipper
qualifications to sailboats under 15mt..
So... if I register my boat under their flag, Do I need to keep the 20nm limit, or am I "free as a bird" from that moment on?
