the rya view on brexit

One of the most stupid and racist decisions ever, the Royal Yachting Association shares their view on how Brexit may affect yachties..

The outcome of the referendum on EU membership is likely to have a number of implications for RYA members and the boating community.

We are working hard to ensure that Government understands and takes account of the activities of our members as it negotiates the UK’s exit position. We are continuing our work with our member committees, other marine bodies and the Government to understand the impact of Brexit on recreational boating. As such, we have developed a series of position statements which are forming part of the UK’s negotiations.

In particular, we are concerned about what the Brexit related bills may mean for border controls, time limits on duration of stay both for individuals and vessels wishing to visit Europe, the future ability of recreational craft and their contents to travel freely throughout Europe without customs restrictions, and the ability of RYA qualification-holders to work in the EU territory.
