So, Rogue, as long as I haven't stolen the vessel.....and if I crashed into a "certain RIB", I'd not bother coming back anyway....Oh, the shame of it..

there is always the chance that they crashed into you but they had more witnesses/friends. This would certainly be the case with their last victim

My policy says Private pleasure, and commercial use(with a long list of what I can and can't do in the "commercial" term).
I'm coded cat 3. Fine to use more than 20miles for private use.

That was certainly my impression when the thirty or so Ribs accompanied Mr Bransons car accross the Channel carrying charter guests.

Paul Glatzel and my RIB were on this crossing and I don't think mine was insured for France (was yours Paul?) I think we were coded for use up to two miles away from Calais. funnily enough we had to produce our insurance documents before the event and mine didn't have nutting saying France.

I would have happily got an extension for France if asked or if I'd have thought about it doh!

Good point, John. We made a point of requesting an extension to UK coastal on our policy and are covered from Brest to Elbe. Whilst we feel that Elbe is more than far enough east to cover our likely cruising in that direction, we are unclear about whether we can navigate the Chenal du Four or Ouessant on the way to Brest, as they are obviously further west than Brest itself. Ah well, as we haven't made it further than Alderney yet we'll worry about that in the future!

Edit: NB. I am referring to 'pleasure' insurance only - not commercial. Apologies for butting in!

The Brest limit is a southern limit, I think, and Chenal du Four is north of Best, just about.

If you are going that way stop at Cameret-sur-mer.

Nice village and moved other boats out of the way so we could moor up in our Rib

Cheers

yep we use this rib for training so no need for any further extensions , we use our big humber for anything else and that is covered Brest to Elbe and coded up to 20 miles offshore.
Rougue and Pauls probably were not covered for the charter they did but they would have to check thier policies as they were working on a commercial
charter outside of the uk territorial limits, interesting point made , one worth checking out .

Mark,

Thanks for the info. We've visited Cameret sur Mer by car and it would definitely be a stopping off point for us if we were to go round to Brest. But then so would many other places!! (Ouessant, Molene, le Conquet...) Isn't Cameret sur Mer further south than Brest though? Or would we be covered by the '12 miles offshore' bit?
