For Approval To Train On A Sailboat:

  • the school must own or have access to charter a sailing vessel with auxiliary engine.
  • the sailing vessel must have capacity for overnight stay including beds for the entire crew, galley and heads.
  • the vessel's minimum length should be approximately 10 Metres/30 feet.
  • instructors must be trained and show experience and/or qualifications on a sailboat of corresponding size and type.

For Approval To Train On A Powerboat:

  • the school must own or have access to charter a power vessel.
  • the power vessel should be a cruising vessel with capacity for overnight stay including beds for the entire crew, galley and heads.
  • the vessel's minimum length should be approximately 10 Metres/30 feet and have twin inboard engines. (A single inboard may be accepted, but a vessel with outboard engines is not acceptable)
  • instructors must be trained and show experience and/or qualifications on a powerboat of corresponding size and type.

To certify students for both power and sail they must undertake the practical exam on a sailboat AND a powerboat and have some practical experience on both sail and power vessels. This seatime must meet the seatime requirements for that certificate level.

To offer the Small Powerboat and RIB course you must have an outboard driven RIB or other open style boat.

You may not train/examine students for power endorsement using a sailboat under auxiliary engine.
