yes me again, a non Spanish trailor is fine in Spain as long as its been towed by a country of origin legal non Spanish car. If the trailor is non Spanish & tow vehicle Spanish, without proper papers you will get your boat & trailor impounded & I reckon your chances of being caught being somewhere near 99% as the police are everywhere & its easy money for them.

Fine is 600e so not worth the risk. Ignore what anyone says you will be caught & fined.

So stick with a non Spanish regd vehicle & operator & you will be fine.

Also, make sure you have ICC as they are starting to look at papers in the marinas.

ICC is International Certificate of Competence, essentially the result of a European piece of legislation that allows license holders within Europe to cross borders, or in our case allows nationals who are not required to hold a license in the 1st place to go boating abroad.

There are a few classifications(sail, power upto 10m, power upto 24m and PW) certs can also be endorsed coastal or inland.

Within the UK there are a handful of organisations who can hand out ICCs of which the RYA is the main body.Of the top of my head I think they are doing about 20K a year. Most RYA practical training centres are recognised to asses ICC in their given field ( ie sail/power/pw)

The ticket has no purpose or meaning within the British Isle but wil keep you legit when within the Baltic, Med, Atlantic Europe and inland waterways.
