Exactly so. Once you leave the zone north of Laxey/Peel you are in open FIR.
Most aircraft in real life stay on approach for a FIS but Andreas is busy
enough now for aircraft to switch to their glider frequency for traffic

Just for clarification; what are the zone boundaries for your position,
If, for example, flying VFR to Andreas, do I report leaving the zone,
say near Laxey or Peel, to report back when inbound?
