Well I don't know of any site, but fore Denmark that would be a boring site.

As long as it's your own vessel, and you are sailing for pleasure (Not being paid to do it). You don't need anything.

That's it Nothing......

This is the law, not the sensible thing.

Bring a lifevest, VHF, and maybe a GPS. But you normaly you will be able to see land on both sides all the time. Small country.

Have a check with the RYA maybe MBY - they might guide you to minimum requirements or more importantly indicate countries where there are unusual or onerous requirements

ICC (from the RYA)
Insurance,
VAT Receipt, (yes of course you kept that)
SSR Registration,
Your passport.

If you are trailing it abroad then off to the AA for advice (very helpful). They have a premium breakdown policy which I had whilst living in Germany @ 75 per year.

Manos, If Gary is thinking the same as me, then Southern Ireland will probably be one place

I am watching this thread with a view to going over there sometime this summer, so am highly interested in the responses

AlexB the only thing I can do is to give you this site and contact the club direct. I think that they will be able to help you.

Hi folks

I have tried the RYA with no luck.
I still find it hard to belive that visiting boats need to comply if not staying longer then X. But until I get told otherwise I need to assume thats the case.

I understand the need for common sence things and the list we carry should be well up their with the best (I hope). But as Manos has indicated some things which may or maynot be applicable for a RIB may well be required and hence catch you out.

In some cases it may just be having somthing different, such as alloy anchors are not recognised as a anchor in some counties, life floats, etc

The counties I am interested in are, Ireland, France, Netherlands,Denmark, Sweden, Norway & Iceland.

But prob no more than Ireland for this year

Regards Gary

They always go diving in Southern Irland and they use RIBs.
They are the one who would know EXACTLY what you need.

Oireland

I may be wrong but I don't think you need any paperwork for Eire but it's courtesy and good practice to let the Coastguard know of your arrival and don't forget to take your sense of humour.

They have this quaint little custom whereby the currency in use is always equal to the sterling pound. This wasn't so bad when they had the punt but it's a bit more painful with the euro.

Malahide marina, north of Dublin is a good place to visit. On filling our tanks there a fella asked where we had come from. "Wales" I replied. "No way" he said with a grin on his face, "No way have youse come in dat little rubber tingy. De Oirish sea is designed to keep youse English feckers out."

He asked if we had anywhere to stay, which we hadn't so with typical Irish generosity, he phoned his mother to see if she could accomodate three people dressed all in rubber. This must be the norm in Eire because within an hour, we were being fed steak and chips and were then shown a good night on the town. Brill place! Brill people!
