No British skippers on Spanish flagged yachts

04 Feb 2021

Current Spanish regulations, as from 1 January 2021, do not authorise British citizens to benefit from the recognition of their nautical titles to
skipper recreational boats under the Spanish flag, as the UK is now considered to be a third country. The same applies to boats for charter-hire.

Nevertheless, the ANEN national association of nautical businesses is immersed in negotiations with Spanish authorities which aim to minimise the overall negative effects of Brexit on recreational boating. Source: Mallorca Daily Bulletin link
