IYT Bareboat Skipper & VHF radio certification
Exam: 1 written exam and 1 practical
The IYT Fast-Track is designed to take the absolute beginner and give them the confidence and skills to take command of their own vessel up to 78 feet in length during a multi-day cruise.
Our 12 day IYT Fast-track to Bareboat Cruising course combines the IYT courses right from Introduction to Crew Training right through to International Bareboat Skipper to become a confident and certified skipper in a very limited time frame. We also include a VHF radio course and an ICC (International Certificate of Competence) which is unique to Tortola Sailing & Sights here in the BVI allowing you to charter a boat anywhere in the world.
You do not need any prior certification to complete this IYT Fast-track to International Bareboat Skipper. Previous students who have taken this course have gone on to buy their own boat and sail around the world, making this the original “zero to hero” course!
Typically we will start by learning the basics for a few days on our IC24 keelboat, before heading off around the islands. Half way through we come back to base to re-provision etc giving you a few days to study the books or explore Tortola on land before heading back out around the islands again. During the half way stop you will still be able to sleep onboard if you wish.
If you’re unsure whether this course is for you please get in touch and we will advise the best course for you.
