In order to charter a boat in Greece, or anywhere in the Med’ we’ll need to know that you can sail a yacht. At least two of you will need to be over 18 years old and have sailed before. And one of you will need a piece of paper to prove your qualification.
As far as the paperwork is concerned, then you’ll need to have a certificate in one of the following; and then you’re good to go:
- The International Yacht Training (IYT) Flotilla Skipper or Bareboat Skipper certificate. This qualification is recognised worldwide for yacht charter in all countries. As a total beginner, you can take the 5 day Flotilla skipper course with us and get qualified in one week. If you have some experience (app. 150 miles) you can take the Bareboat skipper course with us also. Our training yacht is in Vassiliki. More on this course
- RYA Day Skipper, Coastal Skipper, Keelboat Level 2 qualification.
- An International Certificate of Competence (ICC), (ICC), or equivalent qualification. The ICC assessment can be done as a half-day session in the UK (prior to departure). It is equivalent to a Day Skipper and suits those with sailing experience but no formal qualifications that want to hire boats abroad. The certificate is valid for 5 years.
