We entered the UK in the Scilly Isles, arriving from Ireland, where we had spent a fortnight after a transatlantic trip.
The wait at the National Yachtline was about 20 minutes and we declared two people with US passports, a foreign-flagged vessel, and an Irish cat —well, the cat was also U.S., but in Ireland we got him a European Pet Passport, so now he was a local!
The man on the telephone said that he would call us if there was a follow-up or need to check the vessel. Which seemed a bit indefinite. Asked if we could disembark, he said that of course we were free to go, as we couldn't be confined to the vessel, could we now?
We departed for France after a couple of days.
Other than Canada, where you also check-in by telephone, this was the easiest required check-in we have done. Canada was only easier because there was no need to wait 20 minutes.
