The Principality of Sealand

The Principality of Sealand, more commonly known as Sealand is a unique micronation with a colourful history that claims Roughs Tower, an offshore platform located in the North Sea approximately 12 kilometres (7.5 miles) off the coast of Suffolk, England, as its territory. Roughs Tower is a disused Maunsell Sea Fort, originally called HM Fort Roughs, built in 1942 on a pontoon barge at Red Lion Wharf as a superstructure of two hollow concrete towers topped with a deck upon which other structures could be added.  The twin towers were divided into seven floors each, which provided dining and sleeping accommodation and storage areas for generators and munitions.  When it was completed three tugboats towed it out to the Rough Sands sandbar, where its pontoon base was deliberately flooded to allow the structure to settle onto the sea floor.  Since 1967, the decommissioned HM Fort Roughs has been occupied by family and associates of former Major Roy Bates, who claim it is an independent sovereign state. Bates seized it from a group of pirate radio broadcasters in 1967 with the intention of setting up his own station at the site.  He attempted to establish Sealand as a nation-state in 1975 with the writing of a national constitution and establishment of other national symbols.

While it has been described as the world's smallest country or nation, Sealand is not officially recognized by any established sovereign state in spite of its government's claim that it has been de facto recognized by the United Kingdom and Germany.  The United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea in force since 1994 states "Artificial islands, installations and structures do not possess the status of islands.  They have no territorial sea of their own, and their presence does not affect the delimitation of the territorial sea, the exclusive economic zone or the continental shelf".  Since 1987, Sealand lies within the territorial waters of the United Kingdom.  Roy Bates moved to the mainland in his later years, named his son Michael who now lives in English county of Suffolk, and died at the age of 91 in October 2012.

History of HM Fort Roughs

In 1943 during World War 2, HM Fort Roughs (also known as Roughs Tower) was constructed by the United Kingdom as one of the Maunsell Forts, primarily to defend the vital shipping lanes in nearby estuaries against German Navy mine-laying aircraft.  It consisted of a floating pontoon base with a superstructure of two hollow towers joined by a deck upon which other structures could be added.  The fort was towed to a position above the Rough Sands sandbar, where its base was deliberately flooded to sink it on its final resting place.  This is approximately 7 nautical miles (13 km) from the coast of Suffolk outside the then 3 nautical miles (6 km) claim of the United Kingdom and, therefore, in international waters.  The facility comprised of radar equipment, two 6" guns, two 40mm anti-aircraft autocannons, was occupied by 150-300 Royal Navy personnel throughout World War 2, and the last full-time personnel left in 1956.

Occupation & Establishment

Roughs Tower was occupied in February and August 1965 by Jack Moore and his daughter Jane, squatting on behalf of the pirate station Wonderful Radio London.  On 2 September 1967, the fort was occupied by Major Roy Bates, a British subject and pirate radio broadcaster, who ejected a competing group of pirate broadcasters. He intended to broadcast his pirate radio station called Radio Essex from the platform, but despite having the necessary equipment he never began broadcasting, declared the independence of Roughs Tower, and deemed it the Principality of Sealand.  In 1968, British workmen entered what Major Bates claimed to be his territorial waters, to service a navigational buoy near the platform.  Michael Bates, the son of Major Roy Bates, tried to scare the workmen off by firing warning shots from the former fort.  As Michael Bates was a British subject at the time, he was summoned to court in England on firearms charges following the incident.  But as the court ruled that the platform (which Major Bates was now calling "Sealand") was outside British territorial limits, being beyond the then 3-nautical-mile (6 km) limit of the country's waters, the case could not proceed.  In 1975, Major Bates introduced a constitution for Sealand followed by a national flag, a national anthem, a currency and passports.

Attack in 1978 & Sealand Rebel Government

In August 1978, Alexander Achenbach, who describes himself as the Prime Minister of Sealand, hired several German and Dutch mercenaries to spearhead an attack on Sealand while Major Bates and his wife were in England.  They stormed the platform with speedboats, jet skis and helicopters, and took Major Bates' son Michael hostage.  Michael Bates was able to retake Sealand and capture Achenbach and the mercenaries using weapons stored on the platform.  Achenbach, a German lawyer who held a Sealand passport, was charged with treason against Sealand and was held unless he paid DM75,000 (more than US$35,000 or £23,000).  The governments of the Netherlands, Austria and Germany petitioned the British government for his release, but the United Kingdom disavowed his imprisonment, citing the 1968 court decision.  Germany then sent a diplomat from its London embassy to Sealand to negotiate for Achenbach's release.  Major Bates relented after several weeks of negotiations and subsequently claimed that the diplomat's visit constituted de facto recognition of Sealand by Germany.

Following the former's repatriation, Achenbach and Gernot Pütz established a government in exile, sometimes known as the Sealand Rebel Government or Sealandic Rebel Government, in Germany.  Achenbach's appointed successor, Johannes Seiger, continues to claim via his website that he is Sealand's legitimate ruling authority.

Since 1990

  • 1997: Because of the massive number of passports that had been issued by Sealand in circulation (estimated at 150,000), the Bates family revoked all Sealand passports, including those that they themselves had issued over the previous 22 years.
  • 2006: On the afternoon of 23 June 2006, the top platform of the Roughs Tower caught fire due to an electrical fault, and a Royal Air Force rescue helicopter transferred one person to Ipswich hospital, directly from the tower.  The Harwich lifeboat stood by the Roughs Tower until a local fire tug extinguished the fire, and all damage was repaired by November 2006.
  • In January 2007, The Pirate Bay attempted to purchase Sealand after harsher copyright measures in Sweden forced them to look for a base of operations elsewhere.
  • 2007–2010: Sealand was offered for sale through the Spanish estate company Inmo Naranja with an asking price of €750 million (£600 million, US$906 million).
  • 2009: A German man who styles himself as King Marduk declared he had claimed Sealand as part of his own nation, the Kingdom of Marduk.
  • October 2012: Major Bates, self-declared Prince of Sealand, died at the age of 91 after suffering from Alzheimer's disease for several years, and was succeeded by his son Michael Bates.
  • March 2016: It was announced that Joan Bates, wife of Major Bates, died on 10 March at the age of 86 in a nursing home in Essex.

Legal Status

The claim that Sealand is an independent sovereign state is based on an interpretation of a 1968 decision of an English court, in which it was held that Roughs Tower was in international waters and thus outside the jurisdiction of the domestic courts.

In international law, the most common schools of thought for the creation of statehood are the  constitutive and declaratory theories of state creation.  The constitutive theory is the standard nineteenth-century model of statehood, and the declaratory theory was developed in the twentieth century to address shortcomings of the constitutive theory.  In the constitutive theory, a state exists exclusively via recognition by other states. The theory splits on whether this recognition requires 'diplomatic recognition' or merely 'recognition of existence'.  No other state grants Sealand official recognition, but it was argued by Major Bates that negotiations carried out by Germany following a brief hostatge incident constituted 'recognition of existence' (and, since the German government reportedly sent an ambassador to the tower, diplomatic recognition).  In the declaratory theory of statehood, an entity becomes a state as soon as it meets the minimal criteria for statehood, therefore, recognition by other states is purely 'declaratory'.

In 1987, the UK extended its territorial waters from 3 to 12 nautical miles (6 to 22 km), so Sealand now sits inside British waters.  The United Kingdom is one of 165 parties to the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (in force since 1994), which states in Part V, Article 60, that: 'Artificial islands, installations and structures do not possess the status of islands. They have no territorial sea of their own, and their presence does not affect the delimitation of the territorial sea, the exclusive economic zone or the continental shelf'.  In the opinion of law academic John Gibson, there is little chance that Sealand would be recognized as a nation because it is a man-made structure. 

Irrespective of its legal status, Sealand is managed by the Bates family as if it is a recognized sovereign entity and they are its hereditary royal rulers.  Major Bates styled himself as 'Prince Roy' and his widow 'Princess Joan'.  Their son is known as 'His Royal Highness Prince Michael' and has been referred to as the 'Prince Regent' by the Bates family since 1999.  In this role, he apparently serves as Sealand's acting 'Head of State' and also its 'Head of Government'.  At a micronation’s conference hosted by the University of Sunderland in 2004, Sealand was represented by Michael Bates' son James.  The facility is now occupied by one or more caretakers representing Michael Bates, who himself resides in Essex, England.

Sealand's constitution was instituted in 1974 and consists of a preamble and seven articles. The preamble asserts Sealand's independence, while the articles variously deal with Sealand's status as a constitutional monarchy, the empowerment of government bureaux, the role of an appointed, advisory senate, the functions of an appointed, advisory legal tribunal, a proscription against the bearing of arms except by members of a designated 'Sealand Guard', the exclusive right of the sovereign to formulate foreign policy and alter the constitution, and the hereditary patrilinear succession of the monarchy.  Sealand's legal system is claimed to follow British common law, and statutes take the form of decrees enacted by the sovereign.  Sealand has issued "fantasy passports" (as termed by the Council of the European Union), which are not valid for international travel, and holds the Guinness World Record for 'the smallest area to lay claim to nation status'. Sealand's motto is 'E Mare Libertas' (From the Sea, Freedom). It appears on Sealandic items such as stamps, passports and coins, and is the title of the Sealandic anthem.  The anthem was composed by Londoner Basil Simonenko, and as it is an instrumental anthem, it does not have lyrics.  In 2005, the anthem was recorded by the Slovak Radio Symphony Orchestra and released on their CD National Anthems of the World, Vol. 7: Qatar – Syria.

Business Operations

Sealand has been involved in several commercial operations, including the issuing of coins and postage stamps and the establishment of an offshore Internet hosting facility, or ‘data haven’, it also has an official website and publishes the Sealand News, an online newspaper.  In addition, a number of amateur athletes represent Sealand in sporting events.

Coins & Stamps

Several dozen different Sealand coins have been minted since 1972, and in the early 1990s Achenbach's German group also produced a coin featuring a likeness of 'Prime Minister Seiger'.   Sealand's coins and postage stamps are denominated in 'Sealand dollars', which it deems to be at parity with the US dollar. Sealand first issued postage stamps in 1969 and through to 1977, but no further stamps were produced until 2010. Sealand is not a member of the Universal Postal Union, therefore its inward address is a PO Box in the United Kingdom, and when an item is mailed to Sealand's tourist and government office, it is then taken to Sealand.

Titles of Nobility

Sealand also sells titles of individual nobility including Lord, Baron, Count and those titles' distaff equivalents.  Following Major Bates' death in 2012, Sealand also began publicly offering knighthoods & Coats of Arms.  In 1978, following the invasion, the Knights of the Sovereign Military Order of Sealand were formed by Prince Roy and Prince Michael to provide for the Principality's defence should it come under threat or attack.  In 2012, following the death of Prince Roy, membership in the Order was opened for sale to the general public.

HavenCo

In 2000, worldwide publicity was created about Sealand following the establishment of a new entity called HavenCo, a data haven, which effectively took control of Rough’s Tower itself; however, Ryan Lackey, HavenCo's founder, later quit and claimed that Bates had lied to him by keeping the 1990-1991 court case from him and that, as a result, he had lost the money he had invested in the venture.  In November 2008, operations of HavenCo ceased without explanation.

Sport

Sealand is not recognized by any major international sporting body, and its population is insufficient to maintain a team composed entirely of Sealanders in any team sport. However, Sealand claims to have official national athletes, including non-Sealanders.  These athletes take part in various sports, such as curling, football, fencing, martial arts and athletics, although all its teams compete out of the country.  The Sealand National Football Association is an associate member of the Nouvelle Federation Board, a football sanctioning body for non-recognized states and states not members of FIFA, that administers the Sealand National Football Team.

Sealand claims that its first official athlete was Darren Blackburn of Oakville, Ontario, Canada, who was appointed in 2003.  Blackburn has represented Sealand at a number of local sporting events, including marathons and off-trail races.  In 2004, mountaineer Slader Oviatt carried the Sealandic flag to the top of Muztagh Ata, and in 2007, Michael Martelle represented the Principality of Sealand in the World Cup of Kung Fu, held in Quebec, Canada; bearing the designation of Athleta Principalitas Bellatorius (Principal Martial Arts Athlete and Champion).  Martelle won two silver medals, becoming the first-ever Sealand athlete to appear on a world championship podium.

In 2008, Sealand hosted a skateboarding event with Church and East sponsored by Red Bull.  In 2009, Sealand announced the revival of the Football Association and their intention to compete in a future Viva World Cup.  Scottish author Neil Forsyth was appointed as President of the Sealand Football Association.  Sealand played the second game in their history against Chagos Islands on 5 May 2012, and the team included actor Ralf Little and former Bolton Wanderers defender Simon Charlton.

In 2009 and 2010, Sealand sent teams to play in various ultimate club tournaments in the United Kingdom, Ireland and the Neyherlands, and were placed 11th at UK nationals in 2010. From early summer of 2012 Sealand has been represented in the flat track variant of roller derby, by a team principally composed of skaters from the South Wales area.  Sealand played a friendly football match in aid of charity against an "All Stars" team from Fulham FC on 18 May 2013, and on 22 May 2013, the mountaineer Kenton Cool placed a Sealand flag at the summit of Mount Everest.

Future Plans

In future there may be some big changes for the micronation which include the possibility of increasing the size of the island to allow for a hotel resort. 

The Bates Family

Following the phenomenal success of the World Martial Arts Council to date, and in order to ensure credability on an international scale,  it has been necessary to introduce some compulsory requirements for registered groups and their members to ensure all instructors and the grades they award are globaly recognized.  The World Martial Arts Council has now introduced programmes relating to administration, education, accreditation, competitions at all levels, responsibilities, and financial stability, in order to support registered groups and their members when required. These new implementations provide many opportunities, eliminate problems created by other organizations, and assist in attaining the highest level of credibility in all martial arts communities across the world.

Administration & WorldMAC Foundation

Free group and individual registrations increased dramatically following the huge success of the first WorldMAC Games held in Bangkok during March 2015, and in a single day a group with over 700,000 members registered along with another with over 1,000,000 members.  This means larger premises, additional staff, and cash reserves are needed to provide the same standard of service, and for the WorldMAC Foundation to be in a finacial position to support, and subsidise registered individuals and groups.  To achieve the above the World Martial Arts Council has introduced compulsory requirements for all registered groups and their instructors, and in addition outlined the responsibilities of representatives that will ensure the expansion of activities in all countries of the world without the necessity of introducing registration or annual membership fees.

All Registered Groups

There are now three requirements for all registered groups.

1.  Existing and new groups must ensure all instructors are registered free as individuals.

2. All instructors must join the International Guild of Masters and pay the stipulated single fee to be accredited and receive the correct certification (See IGM section below).

3. All groups must complete the spreadsheet sent with the group certificate containing the name, sex, date of birth, present grade, date awarded, city and country of each individual member for the international database, and ensure the single fee for each individual member is paid.  Groups already registered will be sent a spreadsheet to complete or this may be downloaded below.  It is the responsibility of each group to ensure all present members are included, that the World Martial Arts Council is informed of any new members and all future grades awarded so records can be periodically updated.   It is not necessary to inform the World Martial Arts Council of members that leave the group, as their details will remain on the database indefinitely so all achievements are permanently recorded for any future confirmation of accreditation.  It is not compulsory for students below master level to register  free as individuals, their addresses, and contact details are not required for the database.  It is the responsibility of every group to ensure the achievements of their members are recorded and protected indefinitely.  This prevents students and instructors that leave their original groups from awarding themselves titles and grades if they establish their own systems.  It is not uncommon for people of a low grade, or no grade at all, to suddenly appear as Grand Masters of an invented system that has no history or credibility, which is one of the reasons for the major decline in martial arts standards.  Although individual registration will always be free, creating a group database and constantly updating it involves much work, so an affordable single fee for each individual is necessary, which must be collected by registered groups from their members and paid direct to the World Martial Arts Council.  Use the spreadsheet below to establish a group database to record and protect all martial arts grades, titles, and achievements of your members indefinitely.  Click the corresponding globe for the required form.

Accreditation & Approved Instructors  

  A vast number of people now teaching the martial arts are unregulated, have no record of previous training, are not qualified to teach, have formed their own associations, awarded themselves titles, and in most cases the highest grades possible or even beyond.  These practices have resulted in a decline in teaching standards, inadequate knowledge, inappropriate grade certification, and a great loss of credibility.  Due to fictitious claims time-and related criteria, strict accreditation procedures have been introduced to eradicate fraudulent practices.  The World Martial Arts Council has established an international register of approved instructors and examiners, and the accredited grades they are permitted to award through the International Guild of Masters.  Every registered group should now ensure all their instructors are registered free of charge with the World Martial Arts Council.  

   International Guild of Masters

All instructors must be accredited by the International Guild of Masters at the correct level according to their grade, and pay the required single professional fee.  Instructors holding 1st and 2nd Dan or the equivalent, must register as Associates of the International Guild of Masters and display the initials AIGM after their names.  Instructors holding 3rd and 4th Dan or the equivalent, must register as Members of the International Guild of Masters and display the initials MIGM after their names.  Instructors holding 5th Dan and above or the equivalent, must register as Fellows of the International Guild of Masters and display the initials FIGM after their names.  All registered and approved instructors within the International Guild of Masters may award any grade up to two grades below their own, and these will be internationally recognized.  In addition, it is now a requirement that all members of the WMAC Technical Board are registered in a professional capacity with the International Guild of Masters.  Many people claiming to be martial artists are only concerned with collecting certificates but the majority of these have no value or accreditation.  The certificates issued by the International Guild of Masters are only issued after recipients and their grades have been thoroughly scrutinized, approved by the International Martial Arts Grade Accreditation Board, and are the only certificates any instructor will ever need.  Use the form below to apply for elite IGM membership and accredited instructor status within this professional section of the World Martial Arts Council.

National Formation of WorldMAC Governing Bodies

In order to gain and retain credibility on an international scale it is necessary that every country has its own WorldMAC Governing Body that is not controlled by or benefits any individual, and which must fulfil the following conditions:

 

1. The name of each Governing Body must be WorldMAC followed by the name of the respective country.

 

2. Any registered individual may establish a WorldMAC Governing Body and register this as a group with the World Martial Arts Council in order to obtain a certificate and unique registration number. 

 

3. Only one WorldMAC Governing Body is permitted in any one country.

 

4. Each WorldMAC Governing Body must have a management committee comprised only of a Chairperson, Vice-chairperson, General Secretary, and Treasurer that are all resident in the same area, and individually registered with the World Martial Arts Council even if they are not martial artists.  A bank account must be opened in the name of the WorldMAC Governing Body, and all transactions must require the signatures of the Treasurer and one other non-related member of the management committee. 

 

5. In addition regional, national and international representatives, and one person for each active martial art, regardless of their location within the respective country, may be elected on to a sub-committee of the WorldMAC Governing Body to ensure all martial arts are equally represented.

 

6. All WorldMAC Governing Bodies must be registered as multi-discipline martial arts sport organizations with their respective National Sports Authority, and a copy of any certificate or written confirmation must be sent to the World Martial Arts Council. 

 

7. Any costs involved with such registration are the responsibility of the respective WorldMAC Governing Body.

 

8. The WorldMAC Governing Body must divide their respective countries into a number regions.  These can be North, Central, South, East or West.

 

9. A stadium in each of the regions must be chosen as a venue for one sanctioned regional tournament each year, and also an alternative larger central venue for a sanctioned annual qualifying championship for selection to represent the respective National Team at the WorldMAC Games.

 

10. The WorldMAC Governing Body shall be responsible for organizing regional and national events, courses and seminars, and will receive 75% of all profits.  The remaining 25% will be paid to the WorldMAC Foundation to support approved causes, and copies of accounts for every event without exception must be sent to the WMAC Executive Board.

 National FormationNExternal Grade Recognition

  Those that have been involved with the martial arts for any length of time have usually come across people making false claims regarding their grades and martial arts history in order to take advantage of the general public.  Most rely on the ignorance of the average person to establish fraudulent businesses, and make use of the mystery surrounding the arts to overwhelm prospective students.  New students pay for lessons sometimes on a contract that is not easy to cancel without financial penalties, and then realize they are not getting what they are paying for.  They then leave, are usually disillusioned with very little good to say about the martial arts in general, and are faced with a sizeable dilemma.  With so many people claiming to be ‘Masters’ it is difficult to know if instructors are genuine.  The alternative is to pay again to be re-graded by another instructor, the fees of which are usually expensive, and even then such grades are only recognized within the organization that awards them.  To address these problems the World Martial Arts Council established an independent international accreditation system to monitor and record the grades of every individual, the dates these were awarded, and by whom.  This is a massive amount of administrative work as all information is recorded, constantly updated, stored on external systems, and can be retrieved at any time when needed for verification or other purposes. 

    External Grade Recognition Application Form & Fees

    Use this form to apply for external grade recognition after registering as an individual with the World Martial Arts Council.  In order to receive a certificate the individual registration number must be shown on the application form, and the appropriate fee must be paid on application.   

     Competition & Tournament Sanctions

Many competitions and tournaments are claimed to be ‘World Championships’ even when other countries do not attend, entry fees are prohibitive for most competitors, some organizers are not even martial artists, and the main concerns predominantly relate to money and profits.  The World Martial Arts Council will only sanction and support the annual WorldMAC Games, and any other tournaments claiming to be at this level will not be supported or sanctioned under any circumstances.  Other titles that designate a large geographical area such as International, European, Asian, National, Regional, or any other name, must first be approved in writing, and the appropriate non-returnable sanction fee must be paid in advance.

In all countries there will only be one annual WorldMAC Regional event for each of the regions, and these will be qualifying events for the annual WorldMAC National Championships in the same country.  In all countries there will only be one annual National Championships and these will be qualifying events for the annual WorldMAC Games wherever they are staged.  Following the staging of the annual regional and national events in any one country 25% of all profits will be paid to the WorldMAC Foundation to build a cash reserve that will enable the financial support of individual and group causes, when approved.  When registered organizations stage their own competitions and apply to have these sanctioned by the World Martial Arts Council, the above 25% of profits to the WorldMAC Foundation will apply, and once approved these events will be qualifying events for the annual WorldMAC Games.  

 Tournament Sanction Application Form & Fees

Use this form to apply to have a tournament fully sanctioned by the World Martial Arts Council as a qualifying event for the WorldMAC Games.
