What experience & qualifications do I need?
For yacht charter you should have previous skipper experience to Day Skipper standard, gained by sailing in the UK or on a previous yacht charter of flotilla holiday. You should be competent at handling a yacht in close quarters, anchoring and mooring in varying conditions, and be able to use your navigation and pilotage skills to plan a day passage and know your position at any time. You should be assisted by at least one competent crew.
The port authorities in Croatia, Mallorca, Tenerife and Malta require an internationally recognised certificate of competence for the skipper, eg RYA International Certificate of Competence (ICC) or RYA Day Skipper Practical.
The RYA ICC will be ever more required by overseas port authorities but if you have skipper experience it is easily obtained in a day from RYA sailing schools in the UK such as Hamilton Sailing or Brixham Sea School
"We took another flotilla holiday last year and cannot believe how much more enjoyable our flotilla with Odysseus was. We thoroughly enjoyed the smaller group and the personnel at the base and the team leading the flotilla were delightful."
