Hmm probably all right but I've rarely seen most of those rules being followed!

so I take it that he didn't tell you what it was, but that was for hiring. Also where they his rules or the law.

Am i stil correct in thinking that you can drive your own boat on an ICC

I am certain if you had your own boat, there would be no problem, this was on the sea by the way.
The proprietor wanted to see some form of qualification, this was a relatively powerful rib. His command of english and my command of french left something to be desired. But I dont think he had ever seen or heard of an ICC. So for legal reasons I presume he needed something that he recognised.
What makes me laugh though is the french inland waterways requirement for anyone using their waterways to have a CEVNI qualification. UNLESS, you are a holidaymaker hiring a boat, where a bit of instruction will suffice.

There are three Permit Categories in France. These only apply if the boat's engine is greater than 6hp (CV in French) - no licence is required for engines <6hp.

1/ La Carte Mer: for a boat with a motor from 6CV to 50CV. This is a permit for daytime sailing within a 9Km range of the coast, awarded after taking a theory course and practical lessons, and passing a test.

2/ Le Permis Mer Côtier: for boats with motors 50CV and up. This permit allows night sailing, but within a limited range from the coast, and is awarded after a course and test.

3/ Le Permis Mer Hauturier: This is gained through a full boating course at a boat school, and covers all forms of boating.

The International Certificate of Competence (ICC)
The skippers of British Registered boats – motor or sail – do not require an International Certificate of Competence (ICC) when sailing in French coastal waters.
If you are planning to use the French canals and rivers, the boat's skipper must have an ICC certificate valid for Inland Waters (having passed the CEVNI exam). However, if you are planning to charter or use a French registered boat, you may need an ICC - although this is not universally recognised.
