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.
The "Carte Mer" no longer exists.
The "Permis Côtier" is not restricted by power now but is limited to 6 nautical milles from a shelter.
The "Permis Hauturier" is purely theory.
In order to navigate on inland water the "Permis fluviale" is required.

Yes the ICC can and should be recognised for boating in France. My father has used his to hire a boat here. There are translations on the RYA website to help communication. http://www.rya.org.uk/infoadvice/boa.../default2.aspx

Thanks every body for your contributions. I'm looking to do a 20 week course called "Brevet de Capitaine 200" which well allow me to commercially drive a boat with upto 12 passengers, 250Kw power upto 60 NM from shore.

What would be the RYA equivalent to this?

So it wasn't just me that noticed all the crap in that alleged list of "qualifications" lol.

When I last looked the RNLI didn't issue "Coxswain" certificates for D Class's either, Coxswain courses only apply to AWBs. All others have helmsmen, not coxswains.

The poser / poster will also find that having an EFAD ticket won't cover him on his "medical van" (whatever that may be ) or indeed anything else not owned by the organisation who ran the course.

There is no blue light license in existence, at all, whatsoever. Not even for vehicles - each vehicle has to be able to demonstrate suitability of purpose to claim the right to use, which has recently been the downfall of a lot of the "vanity" private ambulance companies.

And before the OP starts claiming any different, perhaps he would like to discuss this with me on the hard shoulder during my working hours

Graeme, I'm not sure who told you this, but they were wrong. The GOC, LRC, and even the ROC are all perfectly acceptable if you intend to take the Yachtmaster Practical Examination. Were you told this by a training centre, or by the RYA themselves?

I would like to retract my previous statement as I cant seem to edit my last post as it now appears that the RYA are now accepting our GOC certificates, so its good that they are moving with the times I was told this by the RYA themselves but admitadly it was a few years ago, the Captain that I am sailing with now used to have his own yacht charter buisness and on taking his yachtmasters he was told the same and had to sit the RYA radio course, again this was a few years ago.


from their website

Certification required A restricted (VHF only) Radio Operators Certificate or a GMDSS Short Range Certificate or higher grade of marine radio certificate. A valid first aid certificate (first aid qualifications held by Police, Fire and Armed Services are acceptable).
