To skipper a yacht on a Flotilla holiday you’ll need an RYA International Certificate of Competence (ICC). Our RYA ICC Flotilla course provides the perfect way to achieve this and is available to sailors who already have their RYA Competent Crew or equivalent. The ICC is a legal requirement in many European countries (except the UK). It provides evidence of your competence to skipper a boat.
What’s covered on this course?
This 5 day course teaches and assesses boat handling, navigational ability (including use of GPS), man overboard procedure and knowledge of collision regulations. We also focus on personal safety and yacht handling skills required to skipper a yacht on a flotilla.
What experience do I need?
RYA Competent Crew or equivalent.
- Accommodation onboard throughout the course
- Breakfast, lunch, refreshments and two evening meals
- Waterproof clothing
- Bedding and towels
- Safety equipment
- Mooring fees
- All charts and publications
Successful completion of this course will count as evidence of your sailing competence – allowing you to apply for your RYA ICC certificate.
Please note: An ICC certificate can only be issued to UK residents and proof of your residential address is required.

We also offer RYA theory courses online, so if you like the idea of doing your theory in the comfort of your own home and at your own pace, take a look at our online theory courses.
Other ICC options:
Our RYA ICC Flotilla course covers around 75% of the RYA Day Skipper Practical Course Syllabus. If you hope to charter yachts in the UK in future (where the ICC is not enough) or you’re just interested in gaining more knowledge, it’s well worth considering our RYA Day Skipper FastTrack course instead.
If you firmly believe you already have the sailing skills and experience as a skipper to get your ICC, you can take a simple one day assessment with one of our RYA instructors. We’ll obviously need to schedule this on a day when we have a yacht available, so please contact us to discuss.
