Going abroad

I'm due to go over to France this summer in the boat and I'm wondering what paperwork I'll need and what to do when I arrive in a foriegn port?

So far I reckon that I need my;
Boat paperwork
SSR Paperwork
VHF Ships Lic
and
Personal
My passport (It is out of date but do I actually need it to enter another EU country???)

I assume I need to present myself at the custom/harbour masters office???

Your help, guys and gals is appreciated.

Chris

Hi Chris,

(In the best tradition of Blue Peter) here's one I prepared earlier: What do I need to take with me when I take my boat across the channel?
Hope it helps and have fun!

P.S. It's also worth checking that your insurance policy will cover you for the entire trip, not just the coastal bits!

See under FAQs the following:

What do I need to take with me when I take my boat across the channel?

and YES, your passport is technically needed and should be in date. Whether or not you are ever asked to produce it is another question!

Don't you dare go rushing around - you need to get your back in tiptop condition so you get RIBbing again!

Absolutely yes. It was the second item demanded by the Gendarme Nationale in Calais!! The first one was our SSR registration. After that it was all they could do to help us out. They asked a local fisherman if we could moor two RIBS alongside for a while to avoid locking in/out.

Absolutely great guys and with my limited French and their limited English we got the message accross that we had come over from Dover for a cup of coffee.

Tim'mers.

Chris we're happy to liaise by pm or phone in order to compare notes as we are hoping to cross the Channel in July (see St. Malo thread).
