WHAT PERMISSIONS/LICENSES ARE REQUIRED FOR YACHT STEERENG?

  • Permissions allowing to steer the same yacht in your country are also respected in other countries.

  • In Croatia, a SRC (Short Range Certificate) operator licence is also required. In general, it is not required in other countries, but you should complete a SRC course and have licence for your own safety.

  • In some water areas (like Greece), an additional person (so called co-skipper) with documented sailing experience is required apart from the skipper.

General notes:

  • The charter operator is entitled to check your skills at a yacht handover. If they are insufficient, he or she can ask you to complete a short training or hire a skipper (these services are additionally paid). However, such situations are rare – only when the operator's employee sees the customer does not know what he or she is doing.
  • Permissions are one thing, and experience and sailing practice are quite another. A reasonable approach to your own skills is recommended.
