A 14-Day Combination Course - from beginner to fully qualified skipper

The 'classic' course is by far our most popular course. A 14-day course that takes you from complete beginner and ends with you becoming a qualified Bareboat Skipper. With Bareboat Skipper Certification you are able to charter a yacht anywhere in the world and skipper it safely during daylight hours and in good weather conditions. If you want the International Certificate of Competence, useful for chartering in Europe, you may apply for it once you have successfully completed the course. This course also includes the VHF Radio Operators Course.
