Has anybody joined / signed up to this, and if so do you have update passage plans every time you go out to make the scheme useful?

no, its just so they have a good idea who they are looking for if you put out a mayday etc. not quite sure why they want to know your usual sea area when in reality you could take your boat anywhere.

Yup! been on it for years. I update it annually to keep it current. IIRC if you don't update it at least every 3 years it lapses.

I registered last year, very easy and simple to do online. Do they send you a reminder before they lapse your details?

A very useful scheme. Definitely sign up. If you get into a tight spot, the more info the CG have the better.
