We offer quality sailing education and constant supervision by our highly trained instructors, who are always ready to answer your questions or offer advice. Upon completion of the course and a successful exam result, you will be presented with a MCA-approved IYT certificate. This IYT certificate will enable you to skipper a sailing yacht in almost any part of the world, since IYT is recognized by over 40 countries. This means you can confidently and safely charter/buy a sailing yacht almost anywhere you want!


The ICC is a certified level of competency required when operating pleasure craft in most European Coastal or Inland waters. Although ICC is valid in any country that signed the agreement, many other countries that did not sign may also require this certificate. If a boat owner requires evidence of competence when visiting another European country the ICC will frequently suffice. It can also be useful for people wishing to charter a yacht. IYT Worldwide has been approved by the Irish Government to issue ICC Licenses to qualified applicants of any nationality on their behalf. IYT Worldwide has also had approval from the MCA (Maritime and Coastguard Agency of Great Britain) for many years to issue ICC Licenses. ICC Licenses have endorsements such as: Power, Sail, Coastal (Offshore), Inland (CEVNI) and Personal Water Craft (PWC). Please check  this note  whether you are eligible to get ICC or not





A typical training course starts from Marmaris/Rhodes and follows the route you have chosen. Theory courses and the practical training is given while you live on the sailing yacht, 24 hours a day. Along the route, we can anchor near idyllic islands or in a secret cove, as you dive into the aquamarine beauty of the sea. Behold spectacular sunsets as you dine on local delicacies, fall asleep under the star-studded sky and find true peace of mind... Explore historical sites; let your eyes feast upon the plethora of sea-life, live a life you could have only have read about before! After you have returned to your normal life, all of this might seem like a dream to you, but that IYT certificate will prove that dreams do come true… Arrival and departure to the sailing yacht is on Saturdays. You can select a route in the  Routes section. You can browse through our timetable in the Schedule section and decide on when to join. If you join as a group or if all the participants of that week agree, we can change our route.
