There is a Swiss Cruising Club who do courses. Cruising Club Suisse(CSS)

Voile Evasion have also have partnered with RYA schools all over Europe. Listing Greece South Of France Corsica as places where RYA partners can offer both RYA and Sea License.

Might be worth while contacting them. I don’t know anything about them just came up on google for Swiss ICC.

Google ICC got me the international criminal court.

You want the International Cruising Certificate which google tells me in Switzerland is the Sea Licence.

just be aware if your country is a signatory to UNE40 then it can only issue an ICC to its nationals, so most europeans cant get an ICC via the RYA course

According to the website they have partnered with some RYA schools and if you take the RYA course at one of those RYA centreís. The Swiss will issue you a Sea Licence. Presumably you have to be Swiss.

Re: RYA training centers recommendations in Europe?

I did RYA practical in Gocek/Fetiyeh Turkey with Colin Jaquiss at Sunsea Yachting. It was a wonderful place to sail and he was patient, pleasant and a good teacher. Turkey had inexpensive accomodations and food. sunseayachtingturkey@gmail.com



In Europe I did a theoretical RYA course with Rob Clark at RUSailing, in Lagos Portugal. Rob is as good as it gets. His Partner Jules is amazing and super helpful as well. rob@rusailing.com



RYA vs ASA? RYA goes deeper and more intensely into Navigation, tides and currents. MUCH deeper. This makes the theoretical for me...tough.


Fabulous riches? LOL. These guys live the life and in return make little. You lease a 40 foot boat, pay the moorage, fuel and maintenance, food, cleaning and then take 3-5 people out for 5 days and 3 nights for 795 Pounds and then look at your retirement account. That's 159 pounds a day per person, LESS the expenses, some sort of RYA fee (small I am betting) and your wage.


Compare that to a Hotel room and meals and nothing else.

@intikee I'm also currently in Switzerland, and looking at getting an introduction to sailing, potentially through a course. Did you end up working something out?

Not quite. A member here was very nice and took us for a sail but we haven't done a course yet. Open to suggestions if you find anything Something that looks interesting is sailwithus.de which is a company organizing charters, more or less. Maybe that's an option? But they don't do RYA or anything like that AFAIK.

Re: RYA training centers recommendations in Europe?

Iíve heard that Allabroad Sailing in Gibraltar is pretty good from various people.

Iím sort of in a similar situation as you are and will most likely pick something in Palma mostly due to how easy it is to fly over seeing as the Germans love Mallorca

If I may hijack this thread for a minute;

Anyone familiar with the German licenses have some reference to obtaining your ICC with your SBF See license? Apparently according to Wikipedia it comes with the license, but the SKS has a specific section about it essentially being an ďinternational licenseĒ which Iím assuming are two different things?

If I wanted to bareboat charter, would it make sense to do the day skipper course on top of the SBF or does the SBF suffice (along with your SRC cert of course)? What is the bare minimum?

We had quite a few people recommend Hamble in the UK, and we've booked to do the RYA Day Skipper theory online and will do the practical with them in early November.

It would be great to find places we can crew with etc. to get some experience. Baby steps!

Re: RYA training centers recommendations in Europe?

Iíve just finished the Day Skipper portion of this sequence. Highly recommend Hamble School of Yachting. The level of instruction and quality of instructor was impeccable. And itís cliche but true, there is nothing like sailing in the Solent. https://www.hamble.co.uk/content/S63...20Brochure.pdf
