If you plan on chartering in Europe in the near future then now is the time to renew your IPC!

Are you qualified to Bareboat Charter? That is a question that charter companies will ask when deciding whether or not to put you in charge of your own vessel. In the Caribbean, charter companies will often use your ASA logbook, certifications, and sailing resume as evidence of your sailing experience. In Europe, the situation is a bit different and you will most likely need an International Proficiency Certificate (IPC) to charter your own boat.

The International Proficiency Certificate, or IPC, serves as proof of bareboat charter competency for Mediterranean chartering companies, many of whom require the proficiency information displayed in a different format than the ASA Log Book. This certificate is mandatory when chartering in most European / Mediterranean waters.

The ASA International Proficiency Certificate is accepted in the following countries

Belarus, Croatia, France, Greece, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Turkey.
