However if it is something that the CG do want, then Peter highlighting this to the RYA is likely to result in a discussion between the RYA and the CG with I am sure a "better practice" article in the future, assuming of course that the official CG position is that this is preferred (and not wasting a minute on every call listening to skippers trying to find/remember/mumble a very long number).
Polwart - I have notified the RYA. Will report back here what they say.

Incidentally, when I am instructing I always suggest that the Vessel Call Sign and MMSI number are kept on laminates adjacent to the set, perhaps on the Emergency Procedures card. Being geriatric, I have problems remembering my boats name, never mind the call sign or MMSI!

Response received from RYA, usual pleasantries and thanks etc.

"Being drawn to the attention of our Radio Advisor".

So it sounds like it has ended up in the correct part of the RYA

I'm pleased to say, this is very reassuring.
