‘Brexit Issues for Cruising Sailors’ webinar now available

A ‘Brexit Issues for Cruising Sailors’ webinar addressing the key Brexit issues affecting the sailing community is now viewable to all following huge demand for it to be made available to the public.

Over 300 Cruising Association (CA) members from 13 countries tuned in to the webinar on the 5th December, the content of which was researched and presented by members of the CA Regulations and Technical Services group (RATS).

The webinar programme focuses on the main difficulties facing cruising sailors as a result of Brexit, and features:

  • Introduction: Robin Baron (Chair)
  • People issues including immigration and Schengen 90 days: Trevor Page
  • Vessel issues including VAT: Roger Bickerstaff
  • CA Brexit webpages: Robin Baron

The webinar recording can be viewed on the CA’s YouTube channel.

A PDF of the PowerPoint slides of the presentations are also available to view on the CA’s public website pages.

CA president, Julian Dussek, says: “At a time when the Brexit arrangements are still unknown, it was a delight to watch the RATS Brexit webinar. The complexities and implications of our leaving the EU were explained with great clarity.

“I am extremely grateful for the enormous amount of work that RATS has been doing for the CA, both in compiling the Brexit pages on the website and for putting together the webinar. I am now much more knowledgeable about what I will have to do next year, and what not to do.”

The CA says the webinar recording and PDF of presentation slides must only be viewed on the understanding that they are based on information available at the time of broadcast on 5th December 2020. As such, any of the detail provided may be superseded at any time and the video or PDF of the slide presentation will not be updated to reflect any changes.
