Hi Tony

To be honest there shouldn't be a problem however I have found that sometimes the local 'powers that be' may decide differently!

I would suggest that you speak to the Harbour Master/Marina Manager to check out if they will accept the CoC or want to see something of a higher level.

Best of luck

Thanks guys, there appear to be a number of hurdles to jump before we head south next week

For the avoidance of doubt I meant that you ask the Harbour Master/Marina Manager in France.

I know that around the Riviera/Cote d'Azur it shouldn't be a problem as I am aware of quite a few people who work in the region using RYA CoC's on UK and other Red Ensign Registered vessels.

Have a brilliant time

Hi, I am Silja from the project GETAFIX.eu who have published the newsletter above.
With regard to Tony's question I would like to add: In principle if you have a British flagged vessel, then it underlies the British rules meaning tat your British qualification is fine. Sometimes the local authorities do not see/ understand this, but those are the rules.
BUT: If you wish to work commercially on a British registered vessel, you need to get it coded to UK coding rules. In those you will find that you can't code a boat with a petrol engine. Therefore you will probably have to look into French coding. And that is when your problems will start, because as soon as the boat is French flagged, then you underlie the French rules and whether they will accept you British commercial license is doubtful. That exactly is what our project tackles.
Sorry for this, but it is unfortunately as complicated and difficult as that.

To avoid confusion and to stop any panic petrol engines can be used under the SCV Code MGN 280 paragraph 7.3 page 40

There are plenty of petrol engined boats that have been coded. I have had three
