AYC Skipper Course 2017

March 22, 2017 Specials

Get trained to be a skipper in Croatia with AYC in 2017.

AYC’s 3 Day skipper course:

Course Content: It is effectively the closest thing to an official state recognised driving licence for yachts or boats. The Croatian B- license can be for power or sail including yachts with inboard engines and anybody that wishes to start skippering or chartering yachts is strongly advised to get one of these licenses.

The test for this course can be passed in every Croatian Harbor master office. More and more charter companies are therefore now requesting, either for insurance purposes or to satisfy government regulations, this particular qualification over others.

Participation fee: EUR 375,- per person (The cost of the 3-day training is including your accommodation on board and all charter costs, local tourist tax not included, Croatian Harbor Master test not included)

This certificate of competence has been developed to create a basic standard skippers certificate that is recognised internationally.

For doing the Croatian Harbor Master test you will need to bring the following:

820,- Kuna (test fee & fee for issuing the license), 40,- Kuna for an adhesive stamp & 2 ID pictures (format 3 cm x 2,5 cm – height/width) as well as the passport. These payments have to be done in the base during check-in in Kuna currency.

Before entering the 3-days intensive course it is strongly recommended to study the skipper trainings book which is supplied by AYC. Understanding the theoretical part is the first step before taking part at the course. AYC offers no guarantee of passing the test after the training!
