access to water in France

Maybe getting ahead of myself here, I haven't even got my SIB yet, but was thinking it would be nice to have SIB packed in car etc and nip to France and get on the water over there. Is it easy to do? or lots of red-tape beforehand?

Assuming you have your ICC (you can apply for it with no test assuming you've done PBII) for the sea, and the CEVNI endorsement (online test ~30) for inland then you should be fine.

In France the "sans permis" limit is 6hp but assuming you fly an ensign then technically they can't ask you for anything at all. Better to be safe though

we used to take a honwave +20hp in the back of a Polo with all the camping gear, had great fun with it.

thanks for responses.
gotchiguy, I'm booked on the RYA Level 2 PB course, and I gather I can get the ICC from that. I haven't heard of the CEVNI so I'll look into it, thanks.

You only need the CEVNI if you're planning on going along inland waterways.

And yep, like I said, once you've done PBII it's simply a question of sending away for the ICC.
