bareboat charter in the Med

One of my friends at work asked the following, i dont know the situation in the med, but i figured that you clever people would

" but I have a colleague who is looking to bareboat charter a power boat in the med next summer. He has asked me to find out which certificates he needs to be able to do this.

Do you know which RYA courses he would need to take in order to get the relevant tickets?"

As far as I know, he needs an ICC for small powered craft. To get this, then he has to take a (coastal) PB2 course, and then apply to the RYA for an International Certificate of Competence. If he's an RYA member, then the ICC is free.

The ICC is (apparently) only valid for British registered craft so if the charter boat is French registered, the ICC will not necessarily be accepted as proof of competence by the charter company. I suggest your friend contacts the charter company and asks them what documentation they require. He may have to obtain the appropriate French qualification!

There was a discussion about this a little while ago: read it here.

as far as hiring a boat is concerned I have done so in Italy and France on the back of an ICC

Latest was with Dark Pelican in Villefranche -; a very friendly and efficient business

The French regulation for using a French flagged boat is that you may do so with a qualification which would allow you to use the same boat in another European Union country, and it (of course) must be translated into French!
