Notice is hereby given that from 1st March 2022, the UK Government issued sanctions against Russian controlled ships with immediate effect, namely The Russia (Sanctions) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 (As Amended).

The Regulations require that ports must not provide a ship with access to a port in the UK if they know, or have reasonable cause to suspect, that the ship is:

a) A ship owned, controlled, chartered or operated by a designated person,
b) A ship is owned, controlled, chartered or operated by persons connected with Russia
c) A ship flying the flag of Russia
d) A ship registered in Russia, or
e) A specified ship

Within the Regulations, a “ship” includes every description of a vessel used in navigation which also includes commercial and leisure boats.

If you require any further information or to report any concerns, please contact Cowes Harbour Commission: chc@cowes.co.uk

All berthing facilities in Cowes are also required to refuse access and report to Cowes Harbour Commission if they suspect that a vessel arriving at their facility falls under the Regulations.

For further information, please see the UK Government – Russia sanctions guidance

This local notice to mariners will remain in force until further notice.
