WHAT IS ICC ?

The ICC is a certified level of competency required when operating pleasure craft in most European coastal or inland waters. Although the ICC is valid in any country that has signed the agreement, many other countries that have not signed may also require this certificate. If a boat owner requires evidence of competence when visiting another European country, the ICC will often suffice. It can also be useful for individuals 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. Additionally, IYT Worldwide has had approval from the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) of Great Britain for many years to issue ICC Licenses. IICC Certificates are from 10 to 24 meters, Sail and/or Power, Coastal and/or Inland, plus Personal Watercraft Operations (PWC). Please check  this note  to determine your eligibility for obtaining the ICC.

Wake-up time is at 8:00 - 8:30 AM with breakfast served at 9:00 AM; usually prepared together on board. After breakfast (10:00-12:00), theory lessons commence. Around noon (when wind conditions are favorable), we set sail for our next destination arriving between 16:00-18:00 PM. During this free time until dinner guests may choose to swim, rest, study or take a nature walk. At 19:30 dinner is served featuring local cuisine and lively conversation among guests that continues into the evening hours.

WHY WAIT?

LIFE DOES NOT!


Our Mission: To Teach Sailing on the Sea and
Create Unforgettable Memories
in the Aegean Sea.

Pablo Neruda's Poetry

He who becomes the slave of habit,
who follows the same routes every day,
who never changes pace,
who does not risk and change the color of his clothes,
who does not speak and does not experience,
dies slowly.

He or she who does not turn things topsy-turvy,
who is unhappy at work,
who does not risk certainty for uncertainty,
to thus follow a dream,
those who do not forego sound advice at least once in their lives,
die slowly.

He who does not travel, who does not read,
who does not listen to music,
who does not find grace in himself,
she who does not find grace in herself,
dies slowly.

Let's try and avoid death in small doses,
reminding oneself that being alive requires an effort far greater than the simple fact of breathing.
