SAILING IN GREEK WATERS?
To sail a yacht bareboat in Greece the Greek authorities require the skipper to have a sailing licence issued by a statutory authority. An ICC (International Certificate of Competence) for sail, an RYA Day Skipper practical certificate or higher, Bareboat Chartering Standard (ASA 104) or the equivalent from your country. The co-skipper should also be competent to sail. We can help you navigate your way to have the right qualifications and experience for the yacht you want to charter.
