  • What sailing license do I need to charter a yacht

    As a rule, in order to sail a yacht abroad, a person needs the same qualification of competency or proof of experience, which is also required in their home country, to use a yacht of the same size and type. For Britian, this would be a bareboat or coastal skipper license. The following are also acceptable as proof of experience from British or other foreign institutions (RYA, IYT, IYTA, YY3 and similar) which cover the coastal navigation zone of 12sm, by day and night.
