Yacht fined €500 for red diesel in Belgium
A WOA member in a UK-flagged yacht was stopped and checked after filling up with white diesel in Nieuwpoort, Belgium. Traces of red diesel were found in its tank and the owners were fined €500. For the past two years authorities in Belgium have been tolerating UK yachts with red diesel in their main tanks, but this may no longer be the case. Unless you have never used red diesel in your boat, you may want to reconsider any plan to pass through Belgian ports.
