ICC – International Certificate for Operators of Pleasure Craft

Gain your ICC with Pembrokeshire Cruising!

If you are planning to Charter outside of the UK, it is more than likely you will be asked to provide ‘evidence of competence’, usually in the form of an ICC.

Experienced skippers, with RYA Tickets at Day Skipper level through to Yachtmaster with detailed logs could find that without the ICC they may not be permitted to Charter.

Obtaining an ICC for Sail

You can apply to the RYA for an ICC if you hold the ticket for the following:

  • RYA Day Skipper
  • RYA Coastal Skipper
  • RYA Yachtmaster
  • MCA, RN, Army & RAF (with specific tickets)

Experienced skippers who have no formal qualifications can take an ICC assessment.
