IMPORTANT INFORMATION/CHANGES REGARDING UK DRIVING LICENCES RELEASED, FRIDAY 15 MARCH 2019, BY THE PORTUGUESE GOVERNMENT/IMT.

POST BREXIT:

1. British citizens resident in the UK, and holders of UK driving licences, can visit and drive IN PORTUGAL for up to 185 days WITHOUT an International Drivers Permit.

2. British citizens who move to Portugal permanently to become residents will have 90 days, from the day they become resident, to exchange their UK driving licence. Failure to do so will mean taking a driving test.

3. UK driving licences ALREADY registered at IMT will still be considered third country national driving licences and therefore will be subject to third country national rules and need to be exchanged.

4. The British Embassy confirmed with me this morning, EU (Portuguese) driving licences CAN be driven on in the UK. It is not known, at the moment, how long an EU driving licence can be used for when visiting and being driven on in the UK.

5. An EU (Portuguese) driving licence, can be used to drive in any EU Member State.

All foreign flagged recreational vessels will have to pay 70Euros this year for Light Dues. Portuguese flagged vessels will pay a rate based on their seafaring capabilities, up to and including 70Euros.

The Marina Office has the links to the necessary documentation, in Portuguese.

By: andrew.susan.andromeda

As many of you will know Andromeda has been sold and I will be leaving Marina de Lagos in April.

To celebrate my amazing years here I would like to invite all Navigators to a Farewell Bash in Madness, from 7pm on Tuesday, 2nd April. Madness are opening specially for the event and, to entice you all even more, the first drink will be on me!!

In addition it would be great if you would all wear something whacky and zany and also wear a little bit of orange! We have much to celebrate!!

See you all there!

Cheers,

Andrew

Hi, Graham Shaw here.  Does anyone have any recommendations about a good, reliable boat cleaning firm or individual?  We are looking for someone to keep the external (hull, deck and fittings) and, occasionally, the internal (floors, woodwork, heads) surfaces of our Moody 38 CC yacht ‘Ocean Trilogy’ clean and presentable whilst she is for sale and on the hard in Sopromar, Lagos.  Some indication  of costs would be appreciated.

Please contact Graham Shaw on either 07734351776 or 01606 79888 or email shawg6@sky.com
