Petition - Lobster Pots and Small craft Safety

The Cruising Association has asked fellow yachtsmen to support a petition 'Lobster Pots and Small craft Safety - time to change the rules'.

The way static fishing gear is marked at sea needs to be improved as the current voluntary guidance is inadequate. Leisure craft are disabled when they get caught up with poorly marked fishing gear. Not only an inconvenience to the yacht, but also means a call out to the RNLI and Coastguard, as the disabled yacht is a potential hazard to shipping.
