waiting for the tide

with the editor To receive the editor’s monthly email newsletter, go to our website: www.pbo.co.uk Symbols of the revolution? There are still pockets of resistance holding out against the existence of the greenhouse effect and global warming, however it’s easy to sympathise with PBO readers who feel a little conflicted when confronted with images (or even the reality first-hand) of five apparently well found small cruisers being spray-painted, daubed with slogans and towed into the metropolis to be used as props for the environmental activism movement known as Extinction Rebellion. Personally, I am really proud that these seaworthy little boats are front-page news. Yes they’re plastic and yes most will have a petrol or diesel engine, but despite these obvious failings as symbols of a fossil-fuel-free future, this fleet has been a roaring success!…

no brexit deal? keep red diesel!

SEND US YOUR STORIES Email news editor Katy Stickland at pbo@ti-media.com, tel: 01252 555213 The RYA is calling on the Government to ignore the European Union’s ruling on red diesel if the UK leaves the EU without a deal. Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC) is conducting a consultation about the impact of banning red diesel to propel pleasure craft. The consultation follows a ruling by the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) in October 2018, which found that the UK’s taxation rules for diesel used in private pleasure boats contravened the Fuel Marker Directive. The directive is designed to ensure that any misuse of diesel crossing EU internal borders can be detected given the variation in duty treatment in member states. In the UK, most marinas sell red diesel on a 60/40 split of…

scottish seas protection

Over 5,000 square miles of sea around Scotland could be turned into Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) under new plans being considered by the Scottish Government. The four proposed MPAs cover North East Lewis, the Southern Trench in the outer Moray Firth, the Sea of the Hebrides and Shiant East Bank in the middle of the Minch, the sea that separates the Hebrides from the Scottish mainland. Marine Scotland is now consulting on the proposals, which aim to protect species such as the minke whale, basking shark and Risso’s dolphin, as well as geographical features such as burrowed mud, which supports many marine animals including sea pens. In its consultation documents, the Scottish Government says the new MPAs will not economically impact recreational sailing, although harbours could face increased costs for extra environmental assessments…

new campaign highlights the dangers of boating and alcohol

Boaters who enjoy a drink while cruising the waters around the UK are to be targeted in a new campaign by the Department for Transport. The Government has formed an Alcohol Awareness Steering Group with members of the marine sector including the RYA and the British Ports Association (BPA). It will develop the campaign, which aims to improve safety on the water by highlighting the dangers of drinking afloat to recreational boaters. Commenting on the campaign, the chief executive of the BPA Richard Ballantyne said: “Although many recreational users enjoy boating responsibly, sadly it’s believed that the issue of drinking in the marine environment has contributed to incidents and accidents around our coast. However as a sector we are alive to the problem and are using this campaign to create awareness and…

boat pollution under the spotlight

Emissions from recreational boats around the UK coast and inland waterways are to be looked at by the Government. Boat owners, port and marina operators, boat yards and storage companies are being asked to contribute towards the Department for Transport’s Call for Evidence which will be used to better understand the levels of emissions from pleasure boats and whether more needs to be done to address emission issues. Details such as the number and type of recreational boats operating in UK waters, as well as the age, engine size and fuel used are just some of the information being sought by policy makers. The consultation is part of the Government’s Clean Air Strategy, which was published in January 2019, and sets out the need to cut emissions to improve air quality. The consultation…
