"We spent a week in the company of Robert the skipper and Veronica the hostess on board Icarus sailing the north Ionian islands. Their hospitality was second to none, Roberts knowledge of the islands is amazing and Veronica laid on wonderful food and took care of our every need. The yacht is immaculate and very comfortable. The week went far too quick. We visited some amazing places and ate at some great restaurants. It was our perfect holiday experiencing something different every day. We hope to return again and would highly recommend."
To skipper a bareboat charter or flotilla yacht, you need to hold a practical sailing certificate equivalent to RYA Day Skipper Practical qualification or RYA International Certificate of Competence (ICC). For charters in Greece, you must now have the ICC certificate. You must also be assisted by at least one competent crew member over the age of 18.
For charters in Croatia, Malta and the Canaries, at least one member of the crew or the skipper will also need a VHF licence.
RYA qualifications can be obtained by RYA sailing schools in the UK or alternatively choose from one of our overseas centres in Gibraltar, Greece or Turkey.
For Caribbean and Tropical charters, formal qualifications are not compulsory, however, you should be Day Skipper standard and be assisted by at least one competent crew. A brief sailing resume should be provided to outline your experience.
If you don't hold the relevant qualifications then why not add a skipper?
