RYA delighted at Government decision on Red Diesel

HM Treasury confirm recreational boaters’ continued entitlement to red diesel.

The RYA is pleased that following public consultation, HM Treasury has today confirmed its decision to maintain recreational boaters' entitlement to use red diesel beyond April 2022.

Last year, the RYA responded to the HM Treasury red diesel consultation, making it clear that supply around the coast for recreational boaters could not be guaranteed unless the entitlement to use red diesel was removed from commercial boat operating industries as the cost of installing a second pump for white diesel would not be commercially viable in many harbours and ports. The RYA has always maintained that the simplest means of maintaining supply for all recreational boaters on the coast and on inland waterways is the use of duty-paid red diesel. This decision however does not include Northern Ireland

RYA Dinghy Trails

Dinghy sailors can be inspired to explore the British Isles with a new ‘Dinghy Cruising Trails’ initiative, launched at the virtual RYA Dinghy Show today (28 February 2021).

The initial six trails are at Ullswater, Largs, Rutland Water, Milford Haven, Brownsea Island and Hickling Broad with many more to come as the initiative progresses.

All trails are under six miles and each trail has been selected because launching is free or available at nominal charge.
