International Certificate of Competence - ICC
Complete the International Certificate of Competence (ICC) for your ticket to hassle-free sailing around the world!
EastSail is accredited with the RYA to offer the International Certificate of Competence of Pleasure Craft – otherwise known as the ICC.
The ICC is essentially a ‘bareboat license’ that many harbour masters now demand from owners or charterer skippers around the world – it is documentary assurance that the holder is a competent sailor. Requirements for an ICC vary from country to country, but holding one is important when sailing in foreign countries, in particular the European inland waterways.
You can either undergo RYA training up to Dayskipper level (shorebased and practical) or if you are an experienced sailor with good theoretical knowledge you can be assessed by an RYA instructor. The ICC assessment consists of practical and theory elements that will be assessed over half a day aboard one of our 10-12m yachts. A full day is required to assess 2 people.
