Not sure that SSR answers the mail when it comes to the key question of proving VAT paid. Itís also hard to comply with the registration markings properly on smaller craft!

Yes indeed, we did spot you! .Barcelona via Rotterdam; Sooner you than me. how did France and Spain go?

Jav euros are in Germany next year, so another set of regs to negotiate.


Hot! But very easy to find Aires to stop in. Took the scenic route down the N71 which was hard graft, with interesting side winds, but very beautiful.

Been over Plymouth-Roscoff twice this year (boat on the roof) and no issues, other than having the car searched each time...only happens if I'm on my own, never with the family.  Shocked

However another UK sailor going via St Malo had customs take an interest in their boat ownership documents, so may be best not to get complacent.

Supposed to have UK sticker on your car now not a GB or EU but no-one cares ( except the DUP perhaps).


Iím guessing you travelled out daytime Saturday 23rd? Cos I though I spotted a Javelin. We were the motorhome and two 29ers.

Itís warm down here in BarcelonaÖ.

So antiquated with ANPR, they know straight away it's a UK vehicle, don't need tax disc etc.

Yep - echo that, plenty of people falling foul of that at the moment.  It's an easy fine for local police to 'extort'
