Sailing the Med - Are European Competencies Required?

We are planning to sail the med and wondering if North American Competencies were adequate or if it was required to get European competency levels beforehand (i.e. RYA). If so, does that apply if you are the owner of the boat or only if your are chartering a boat from the many charters in the regain?

Your insight on the subject would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Sailing the Med - Are European Competencies Required?

No , you only need whatever tickets your home country or flag registered country require. The only country in the Med that requires some sort of competency certificate is Croatia, and its accepts a wide range including various European and US certs.

as to charters, that situation varies , but the charter companies will advise you as to the requirement. In general NA tickets are fine all over the Med ( in reality no one really cares )
