About event

IYT Bareboat Skipper theoretical course in Saint Petersburg

IYT Bareboat Skipper Certificate allows you to independently manage a sailing or motor yacht. The limitations are the size of the yacht - up to 24m, distance from the coast - up to 20 miles, sailing is allowed only during daylight hours and with favorable weather conditions. A typical weeklong cruise is well within these limits.

To become an IYT Bareboat Skipper from the beginner level, you need to complete a theoretical course and two weeks of practice on a yacht. Moreover, the first week of practice can be completed both before, during, and after the theoretical course; and the second week of practice is after the end of the theory.

Part of the theoretical yachting training course must be completed online, you can do it at a convenient time and in a convenient place. The cost of this online yachting course is included in the total tuition fees.
