The UK is fantastic*. You can use your Pro 12 with no license, no training, no insurance, no lifejackets, no killcord, no auxiliary, no flares and no clue. Lots do.

Enjoy!

* and still includes the rugged haggisy bits to the North ;-)

Well an ICC/RYA is required by a lot of club slips and some councils Gwynedd can be quite picky requiring registration and proof of insurance to launch

You don't need ICC or PB2 to launch on council slips in N.Wales but you do need insurance and if you hold PB2 it can be cheaper for your policy but its not essential.

I've no experience in practise but their website implies:

(1) You need £3M insurance to use slipways etc.

(2) To "operate" a powerboat (or PWC) within their harbour areas you need to be EITHER 18yrs old OR > 15 yrs old and hold RYA cert (or > 12yrs old, with RYA cert and under direct adult supervision).

On the very rare occasions that I've been asked for any paper work in the UK, it's been insurance. C'est tout! Even then I haven't had to produce it, just sign a declaration that I have it. The main differences between France & the UK, boating wise are UK=lack of "Controle" compared to France, UK=expensive launching fees, compared to France.

Just use Chris at Ty Calch, you dont need anything *



* Although its not needed legally, insurance, training/experience and basic safety kit should be a minimum requirement for a responsible boater.
