thanks Ian,
the thing that makes me laugh is that the french insist on a cevni qulification for inland waterways, "unless" you are a holidaymaker and want to hire a boat.

Yep, there's always something about the French to make you laugh. My Gran's family was French.

.....simply pointing out that it is only the RYA that issues ICCs for British residents.
Both BSAC and BWSF (British Wateski Federation) can issue ICCs too.

I think you will find that it is in fact an international boat drivers license.
My understanding is that it can't actually be considered as such as an ICC gives no rights as it is evidence of competence. It is up to countries and areas within those countries to decide whether they are happy to accept it. That particular hire chap aside (who clearly does not have many customers from the UK!) i've yet to hear of a situation where these qualifications are not accepted by the relevant authorities though.

Incidently ICCs issued by the RYA can be to either British Nationals (irrespective of where they are) or 'bona-fide' British Residents of any nationality.

I believe that BSAC will issue an ICC to holders of it's Divers Cox'n qualification.
