    Time for a massive invasion of 'red powered' British ships - mass disobedience might expose this for the farce it is. Or a blockade of Belgian ports, a massed sail up the Schelte at 3 knots and a blockade of Antwerp might get some attention. Works for the French fishermen.

    Baffling - isn't it.

    UK yachts carrying duty free alcohol and fags - legally bought in Belgium - have had them confiscated by C&E upon arrival in the UK.

    Guapa,
    The tax-free booze from Belgium is not "for consumption outside Belgium" it is only for consumption OUTSIDE THE EU. You cannot get duty free for any trip across the borders of any EU member countries. Same applies in UK, if you got duty free booze in UK & landed in Belgium, France, Holland or any other EU country it would be liable for confiscation.

    You CAN have legal duty free on a trip to/from the channel islands tho.

    Please show me where I am wrong then. It is how Duty free rules have been applied to my many trips abroad - whether coming, going or transiting.

    Default Ruddy diesel

    Why would anyone do that, when marina diesel these days seems to always quite near the forecourt price?

    I got done [over 700] by the Dutch on a similar charge a few years ago and it took a lot of screaming and shouting to get my money back.
    But the underlying problem has not been resolved by the politicos and their lackeys.

    With the help of Google translate

    Yachts (Belgian or Belgian) through the territorial waters extending from a Belgian marina to another EU (or EU) marina go, have the right goods free of duty and to pay the Belgian VAT to buy and this without any quantity limitation .

    The supply is only possible in the Royal North Sea Yacht Club and the Mercator Marina in Ostend.

    The consumption of duty-free goods are ONLY allowed outside territorial waters.
