International Certificate of Competence

If you are looking to charter a yacht privately, the charter company will usually ask for evidence of competence. Some accept RYA qualifications, others particularly in Europe, require an ICC Certificate. You should check with the charter company for their exact requirements.

For holders of the RYA Day Skipper practical certificate or higher (RYA Coastal Skipper, RYA/MCA Yachtmaster Coastal or RYA/MCA Yachtmaster Offshore) who are members of the RYA, you should contact the RYA directly and they can issue you with an ICC Certificate free of charge, subject to certain eligibility requirements.

For those who do not hold a qualifying RYA certificate, competence can be evidenced through successful completion of a one day assessment with Sailing Logic, from our base in Port Hamble Marina.

Members of the RYA may receive their certificate without further charge. A fee is payable by non-members (currently £43).
