International Certificate of Competence (ICC)


About the ICC

If you can already sail but have no piece of paper to prove your ability, then the RYA’s ICC assessment is just what you need. It’s about a half day assessment with a yacht instructor, which, after successful completion, will enable you to charter yachts internationally and of course in Greece.

You can take your ICC at a local RYA Training Centre in the UK, or you can take it with us during week one of a two week Stay Sail holiday with our resident yacht instructor. On successful completion, it will set you up for skippering your own yacht for week two. It must be completed before your yacht charter starts. And we offer a special guest price (£90) for Stay Sail bookers.

An ICC is the bare minimum required by many European countries to charter a yacht. Once you have it, it is valid for five years. We can also accept an RYA Keel-boat Level 2 certificate to charter our yachts on flotilla. You can take this 2-day course during week one of a Stay Sail holiday too.

Taking your ICC on a Stay Sail holiday

If you’re planning a Stay & Sail holiday to the Surf hotel in Vassiliki, it’s the perfect opportunity to take your ICC with us. If you can already sail (Day Skipper standard) but don’t have an ICC certificate then you can take it with our chief instructor during week one of your holiday whilst at our Beach Club. 

On successful completion, you’ll be ready to go and skipper your own boat for your second week. Spaces are very limited so you will need to book in advance.

You can normally take this half-day assessment on Wednesday or Thursday of your Beach Club week. Do look at the syllabus below.

Special guest price is only £90 per person on your next Stay & Sail holiday. The certificate is £40 extra. RYA Members, no charge
