An ICC is an Intermediate level certification which is required to skipper a bareboat charter in many European countries. It is issued through International Yacht Training. CENVI is an endorsement for inland waters in Europe. The ICC is now issued on successful completion of a course or challenge of the International Bareboat Skipper. There is no additional exam or practical test for the ICC.

See more information.

Wavelength Sailing School is an International Yacht Training member school and we can issue ICC and CENVI Certificates on completion of an International Bareboat Skipper course or challenge through IYT. Course fees include texts exams and costs of certification. The cards can be expedited  and sent to you within a week or an extra charge.


More information is on the IYT website

The International Bareboat Skipper challenge course includes practical on water assessment as well as a theory (classroom ashore) component which is tested in an exam.

The on-water assesment takes about 3 hours s per person . We don’t have a lot of time for coaching so you need to be sailing at an intermediate level.

to prepare for the ashore component you will need to home study, so why not get the theory portion completed over winter before you take the Practical? We will send you home study materials and are avaiable by email to help you with anything you dont understand. The exam can be taken when you come to Kingston. If needed we will review the material before the exam.
