The Intermediate Skipper Course

IYT International Skipper Certification

Plus IYT VHF Radio Operator's Certification

This is a 5 day Intermediate Skipper Sailing course.  It is a certification for those candidates who wish to take command of a sail or power yacht of up to 78 feet / 24 metres, on your own.  It covers all the subjects required to prepare the boat, plan the passage, instruct the crew and command the vessel at sea.

Also included is the IYT VHF Radio Operator's Certification at no additional cost.

 

The Bareboat syllabus separates theory and practical instruction and subjects covered in theory are then put into practice in the practical session on the SailQuest training yacht.

Obtaining this certificate through an IYT partner school who has been approved by IYT to offer the “International Certificate of Competency” to their candidates automatically qualifies for an ICC which is required to charter a vessel in most European countries.

Prerequisites

Individuals must be physically fit and above 18 years old, and have completed the 5 day Intermediate Crew Sailing Course.
