Requirements for chartering in Greece
Thanks to its predictable weather patterns and enclosed sailing area, the Southern Ionian has become famous with sailors from across the globe as a relatively safe and ‘easy-sailing’ yacht charter destination. With a number of secure and safe harbours, marinas and anchorages on each island. Our sailing area is perfect for novices, those with experience and professional sailors.
However, with respect to the Greek port authorities and the fact that a yacht can be dangerous in the wrong hands, it is essential that the named Skipper on board the yacht has a qualification. As a minimum, the skipper must hold one of the following:
- RYA DAY SKIPPER PRACTICAL
- IYT DAY SKIPPER
- ICC SAIL
- ASA 104 BAREBOAT CRUISING CERTIFICATE
If you do not hold any of the above, you will not legally be allowed to charter a yacht in Greece. The ‘First Mate’ does NOT need to hold a recognised qualification, they must be over 18 & suitably experienced to assist the skipper.
