BOAT IMPORT & CE PLATES

 The prices of boats in the USA appear to be at least one third to a half cheaper than those in the UK. This is particularly true of motorboats but many sailing yachts are bigger, better and much, much cheaper than anything you can buy in the UK or other parts of Europe.

Pictures and chart details together with descriptions of the islands.

 

Pictures, charts, distances, links to marina's and faculties, weather and places to visit and what to see.......

In Praise of Spain

If you are thinking of buying a property there or keeping your boat there then this section tells you the rules and regulations as they exist today.

 

Northern Spain, Basque country, is amazing and a wonderful cruising ground and with Gibraltar at the entrance to the Mediterranean Sea.

 

If you become a resident there is a National Health System which is considered to be one of the best in Europe and a living standard which is both high and inexpensive.

The countryside and mountains are spectacularly beautiful.

Gibraltar

 has gone from being a scruffy, dirty, underdeveloped dockyard/military town, into a smart, clean, well groomed tourist resort. Jet loads of holiday makers fly in by MONARCH, EASYJET & BA several times a day. Cruise ships disgorge thousands of passengers who wander Main Street with it’s smart shops and pubs and bars or visit the ‘apes’ up at the top of the Rock. It is the least expensive place on the Costa del Sol to keep your boat and the weather some of the best in all the Mediterranean!

With the departure of Shepherds Marina & Boatyard from the sailing scene, there are now only two marinas in Gibraltar.....more

GENTLE SAILING ROUTE

 TO THE

MEDITERRANEAN

 There are several ways of getting your boat to the Mediterranean. On the back of a lorry, via the French canals, four or five day’s non stop across the Bay of Biscay then down the Portuguese coast or spend the summer or two, gently coasting southwards, enjoying the harbours, cities, towns and villages of France Spain and Portugal.

 

This is not a pilot book, rather a passage plan and guide to the nicer places between the South Coast of the UK to the beautiful Mediterranean Sea.  It can all be done in easy stages, to suit a lightly crewed boat, with perhaps only a couple of people on board who are without ‘offshore’ experience.  Actually, it is a lovely way to explore a lot of delightful foreign places.

I had a dreadful time in Cherbourg recently, with anything but the real problem being fixed at high labour charges - sailed to Guernsey where Marine and General did a superb job of diagnosis, fixing the problem very quickly at most reasonable rates.
