Advanced PB to equivalent sail

Maybe a daft question but...

Enjoy both RIBs and Sailing and have acquired more Power qualifications than sail. Leads me to a problem, I'm heading off on a yacht charter and need to get my ICC (sail).

Is there a simple route to convert my Advanced Power Boat to the equivalent Sail qualification (Coastal?) without having to do a 5 day practical course? Suspect there will be a short practical test to check sailing skills? Don't really want to take a week away from work.

I've sailed for a number years both in dinghies and yachts but haven't actually collected the sail badges.

Cheers

I think you can do your icc sail as direct examination as you can for pb so expect it would be less than a day. If you are competent sailing and capable navigating you should be able to do day skipper in a weekend which automatically (for a fee) gets you icc.

Contact a school who do saily ICC's and have your powerboat one Converted
Just complete or be assessed on the saily bits, that should do it
That should do for 10m if your original is 10 or 24m if that's what your power one is
I reckon!

Thanks folks. Apparently (according to the school I spoke to) it's not as straightforward. They can assess ICC in an afternoon, but they'll not do the 3hr practical and conversion proposed by the RYA (http://goo.gl/d5IdSY) without a logbook evidencing sail experience.

Sorry meant to add, they'll do the Dayskipper over 3 days (and to be fair at a good discount), but I was hoping to take less time off.
Will go for the ICC option.

Is the log book not a self completed document? If so and you can honestly pin point some sailing (e.g. family holiday can give dates, recall places visited, weather etc)...
