Bareboat Sail-yacht charter in Greece requires two experienced crew members. The first one (skipper) should have an appropriate sailing certificate, or demonstrate sailing club membership. The second one (co-skipper) should have sailing experience. Official declarations stating the skipper’s competence and the co-skipper’s experience may be also required if the harbor authority considers this necessary. If no such certificates are issued in your home country, you will be required to present a reference from a yacht club verifying your ability to sail. You may also submit a sailing resume that will enable us to assess your ability to sail in safety. Yacht owner reserves the right to ask charterers to hire a professional skipper if their sailing skills are not judged sufficient. For bareboat Motor-yachts, both qualified crew members (skipper and co-skipper) must present a license for motor yachts. In this case declaration forms are not acceptable.
