Register your boat with the coastguard’s safety scheme

Register your boat’s details with the Royal Yachting Association’s (RYA) SafeTrx service. This is free for owners and skippers of all types of leisure vessels and small craft.

Your details will be available to HM Coastguard and RYA. This will give HM Coastguard the information they need to mount a search and rescue operation if you get into difficulty.
