I followed through your responses with interest and just wished Australia
was as flexible as US.
Before I have to start another thread I hope some readers with Australian
knowledge have been following your posts as I am involved in a bareboat charter
business on the east coast
and would like certification
to meet a new demand for skippered charters of 6 to 12.
It would seem I have two options
1. Coxswain NC1 (Aust law NSCV part D) which covers up to 12m, which is enough for me..or
2. RYA Yachtmaster
Off shore and Ocean Certificate of Competence with Commercial
endorsement which covers up to 24 m (sorry guys I mean 80 ft)
What I need to know is will the Australian Coxswain Qualification also cover me world wide if I skipper
a paying customer charter
, or even charter a boat privately in Europe
, or even USA if its dollar ever stops floating up against the Australian.
Or do I have to bow to the colonial master and do the RYA course which has far more documented off shore sailing trip requirements which in my case was mostly more than 30 years ago could be difficult for me to find documentation
