This course is required in order to bareboat charter, or to be completed prior to Advanced Sailing certifications, and attaining the IYT International Certificate of Competency (ICC).
If you do not have this certification and wish to bareboat charter, we can arrange for the course work to be sent to you in plenty of time for you to study, complete the work, and send it to us to mark in order for your certification to be completed before you arrive to charter the boat of your choice.
Work at your own pace through the comprehensive self study manual and chart work.
Your course materials include the coastal navigation manual, a chart, dividers, parallel ruler, and your certifications once you have submitted your completed manual and chart work.
