What for should your family and friends complete this course? The matter is that charter companies in many companies do not rent out a yacht if there is only one person aboard with handling experience. For example Greece. If you acquire a skipper’s certificate, but there is no other qualified person in the crew aboard, you won’t be able to charter a yacht. This certificates solves this problem and proves the presence of one more competent crew member.
We would like to add that we always say: “When you are aboard – everything is ok!!! But imagine for a moment…what if anything has happened to you? What is going to be? Who is going to help you and the crew?!”
Competent crew certificate means that the holder of the given qualification has a primary sailing experience. After completion of this theoretical course you need to pass practical training. Theory is studied online; practical part aboard a yacht within a week.
