e Borders -the imposition on yachtsmen

Comment 5th August 2010

E-Borders is going to require sailing yachts coming in from the near continent to advise HM e-borders, by email only, of their port of arrival, ETA, Number of persons on board, their passport numbers. Any change must be advised as soon as possible. I presume this is to alert E-Borders cutters of potential smuggling or carrying illegal immigrants.

Which self respecting smuggler is going to comply? 

 

Hope someone is actually reading this stuff.

Why does this matter?

This is a sledgehammer to crack a nut and only the innocent will be inconvenienced.  Most Yachts do not have email on board and if battling with a gale will be unlikely to be able to comply.  I would like to take the drafter of this stupid order out in my small sailing boat and ask him to comply!
