Boat registration

Hello sailors!

Does anyone know about the necessity of being registered for off-shore cruising? I'm trying to find any international law that actually states that a pleasure sailboat must be registered and carry a flag. In Canada, for example, a sailboat without an engine does not even need to be licensed and registration is optional for any pleasure vessel.

What kind of trouble would I get into if I sail a boat without registration and a flag?

Thanks.
