I emailed our local marinas about provision of white diesel. They have been sent a release from the RYA stating that red diesel is legal in international waters. Therefore there will be no provision.
I've replied to hmrc's consultation. Hopefully if enough do they'll rethink

HMRC issues new guidelines saying red only in UK waters - RYA sends out release red legal in international waters, and who do the marinas believe?
The one who suggests they need not do anything
Why did the RYA not see fit to point out the you can still get fined abroad with red?www.guapa.pn
Be realistic - aim for the impossible!

As far as I understand it "International Waters" are outside a country's home waters - 12nm offshore for the UK.
Therefore, outside the UK's 12nm limit you'd be in "international waters" until you entered the next country's home waters (eg Belgium).
If that's the case the RYA statement is somewhat unhelpful.

I guess they pick us out by our ensigns?
What is the fine for flying another EU country's ensign?
