no particular preference just make sure you have swatted up and have the books close by when you take it!

See you on the lake!

If you have your ICC already then you don't need to do your CEVNI. If its subject to doing your CEVNI then do it online on the RYA website. You can keep practicing it for free until you are ready to do it.

Don't forget that you need to carry the lake regulations. You get them from the tourist information by the entrance to the slip way in Doussard.

This is wrong: the ICC (which you can obtain from the RYA if you have a PB2 for a fee or free if you are a RYA member) is generally (although not universally) accepted as the certificate of boating competency required by those countries that require such certificates. No more.

As an additional option, the ICC can be endorsed for inland waters. In countries that are signatories to the Basle Agreement (RAINWAT countries) (don't ask! but they include France) this involves passing the CEVNI test which can be done online in this country through a number of RYA approved schools. The cost is the same wherever and, I believe, the exam is the same for all. This permits passage along inland waterways in RAINWAT countries. Whether lakes are included as inland waterways is subject to categorisation.

Incidentally, waters covered by CEVNI regulations require ATIS on your VHF plus OFCOM state that you should carry a copy of the Basle Agreement (although I have yet to find any authority for that). It is many pages long. I take one with me but have yet to be asked to produce it!

My attitude is to take as many pieces of paper as possible and hope that at least some of them provide what the authorities are looking for ............. unless there's a Channel Islander in your party with an Australian passport who's helming a Special Forces boat entering a military base in France and you're the only one that speaks the language: in such circumstances I'd recommend seeing your wife off on a ferry in another part of the dock

Good point. I forgot that you could have an ICC without inland water. I assume that if he has an ICC for coastal waters then he will need to pass his CEVNI and then re-apply for his ICC to be able to use Annecy lake. The easiest way to pass the CEVNI is online.

The RYA sell a book on it but you can also keep doing the practice test online and if you get it wrong it will tell you the answer. After doing it for about an hour you will start to know all the questions. The official online questions will then be some of these questions in the same format.

Just don't try doing the tests on-line if you own a MAC, the RYA do not produce the course to run on a MAC, you need windows

Popup blocker on "Firefox"

However the course still will not load, as it does not recognise the OS system.
