A yacht club wishing to operate a base station, on channel M, M2 and 80, will require a Coastal Station Radio (CSR) Marina Licence which is intended for sailing or yacht clubs as well as commercial marinas and similar organisations. The Licence covers communications concerning the movement and berthing of pleasure craft and the control of races.

The CSR Marina Licence is renewable annually and is also available as a temporary licence, valid for up to 28 days to cover sporting and other special events. Applications should be made to the Ofcom Licensing Centre. As at May 2007, the fee is £75.00 for annual, and £20.00 for Temporary CSR Marina licences.Application forms are available at:http://www.ofcom.org.uk/radiocomms/ifi/licensing/classes/maritime/applications/of18.pdf/
