For anyone interested - absolutely no interest at Customs and Immigration on either side of the channel in our boats when travelling Harwich - Hook of Holland.

No surprise there. Did you get back ok too? ( Tbh "back" is not my problem as I'm flying home leaving helm to ferry the boat ... though flying out of Skiphol has its own issues).

Meanwhile note a couple of contenders in Italy and a container of 12 heading of to Perth for the world's; now THAT one will be a paperwork fest knowing the Australian love of beaurocracy)

In Holland with boat on UK trailer. No problems at Harwich or Hook.

Even the family whose trailer number plate didn't match their car's got through ok. And the family who came through the tunnel with two boats on a double behind a massive camper van were fine

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

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

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

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.

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.

Not sure I have any boat ownership documents other than an email from builder saying paid and something from insurance stored online!
