    Good point about the passage plans. Is this something that's been slipped in via UKBA rules? I've had a quick look on the MCA website, but it's not obvious in the search results.

    Dear MCGA

    On the Yachting and Boating forum there's some chat about the requirements for notifying the coastguard/MCA about passage plans for recreational craft in UK waters. I've been looking on your website for your advice/guidance on passage plans, but couldn't find it. Do you know if such a page exists on your website, and if so, please could I have a link to it?

    Thanks

    I think you'll find that most would agree with that.

    Problem with sailing is that you may know what you know, but there is an awful lot that you don't know, and what makes it worse is that you don't know that you don't know it! 3,000 miles is not many. Some here do that in a year or two.

    All accidents are avoidable. Most are considered stupid after the event.

    Nor did he...
    He also had a passage plan, to go to Southampton. Passage plans apparently don't have to be written down (by law), they can be in your head, which is where mine usually are.

    Probably the first time in history that someone mistook Whitstable for Calais!

    So - you argue that people should be certified and learn how to sail properly, but aren't prepared to do it yourself.
