Registration scheme for power driven craft / personal watercraft
From 1st April 2010 all powered craft launchers are required to register their craft prior to use of the authorised slip ways or access points.
The registration will require all powered craft launched in Anglesey to have valid insurance and to be registered. Registration will be required for each and every powered craft, even when owned by one person.
How do I register?
It will be possible to register at the County Council offices or through the slipway attendants at Traeth Bychan, Beaumaris, Trearddur Bay, Rhoscolyn, Rhosneigr, Bull Bay and Menai Bridge.
You can also register by post. For a copy of the registration form, please see relevant the link in the left-hand navigation.
You will need to provide proof of identity and proof of adequate insurance cover. Minimum insurance cover will be third party £3 million.
How much does registration cost?
From the council direct - £15
At the slipway - £20
Customers who do not buy a seasonal launch permit with their registration will need to pay the registration fee plus the day's launch fee on their first launch. On subsequent launches they will only pay the daily fee.
Where can I launch?
Launching registrations are valid for use at all Anglesey County Council's launching facilities, as listed below. In addition, registrations are accepted by Gwynedd County Council, Conwy Borough County Council and Denbighshire County Council without further registration or payment.
Trearddur Bay Slip way, Traeth Bychan Slip way, Rhosneigr access point, Rhoscolyn access point, Beaumaris slip way, Menai Bridge slip way (Porth y Wrach) and Bull Bay.
Registration and launching fees are required for all the above sites.
Llaneilian slip way,Sandy Beach access point, Holyhead Sailing Club slip way, Lligwy beach, Church Bay, Penrhos beach (Holyhead), Bol Sach slip way (coast guard slip way, Holyhead), Cemaes Bay and Fryars Bay.
Registration required - other charges may apply.
Note: No exceptions permitted to the above restricted slipways without the permission of the maritime officer or his nominated deputies.
Advantages of the registration scheme
This scheme offers considerable advantage to any Anglesey registered launchers because Conwy, Denbighshire and Gwynedd county councils will accept Anglesey registration.
This means, for example, if you decide to go to Gwynedd for the day instead of Anglesey then you won't be required to register again in Gwynedd as in previous years and pay their registration fee. All you will have to do is pay their daily launch fee.
This scheme, where a registration is valid for all four areas, offers the advantage of an ultimate sanction against launchers who create constant problems of any kind by the withdrawal of registration for effectively the whole of North Wales.
To reassure you on this point, the action described would only be utilised under extreme circumstances as a last resort against those who will not comply with bye-laws and local regulations.
