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 is this idea important?

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!
