We are an approved RYA Test Centre for the International Certificate of Competence.
This is particularly useful for skippers planning cross channel and other overseas cruising with their own boat or a charter boat.
It is often a requirement for some European countries and widely required as proof of competence by Insurers.
For experienced Sailors a refresher and test may only take a day. Typical cost £125
For less experienced and those with no training, a minimum of two days are required. Starting at £199
Those wishing to cover overseas Inland waterways will need to add to the ICC with a CEVNI endorsement. This is a RYA home study course and test. We offer this for £49. For those requiring a classroom course at Waterfront, the cost is £99
