English channel crossing

Hi, could somebody please be kind enough to tell me wether you need a special type of license to cross the english channel from uk to france and back again. Is it correct to say that i can simply sail across the channel and enter france through any of the harbours? do i need to tell the owners of the french harbours that my yacht will be entering your harbour?

many thanks

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

That could be my bad... he's posted that question in the Rule 62 thread and I moved it to its own thread... maybe he didn't find it.

OTOH I see he did chime in there too..... oh well.....
