I am afraid you are starting to look a bit silly with your denials when its written there for all to see.
Im sure all sailing schools are very disapointed not to have your business....
Well I never! Looks like I am still on his ignore list!
Don't know how he will cope when he discovers one of his "myths" has been exploded - particularly when it is his sole creation.
Next thing he will be claiming all those Greek companies are in the pay of the RYA in order to increase the "sales" of ICCs. No - must not give him ideas.
Keep at him Captain - Google a few more and send him the links.
Are you having a problem answering a simple question?
Regarding the UK, ring any Insurance company that covers boat charters to resolve your dilemma.
Anyway, we know that you like to have the last word, so until next time......
In response to that, I say something like: "Ahh, so in that case it was legal for a uk boat to visit France with no Reg docs before that e-mail."
...and then you say something like: "No because the administrative instruction only clarifies a pre-existing law."
...and I say something like: "Which law?"
...and then you duck that question.
Don't dodge the issue, Toad. You said "no docs, no problems" referring to all countries east of Italy. And presumably (in your imprecise way) referring to all forms of "paperwork" (ref OP's original request). It just so happens I can produce references to the law in the three countries I quoted. Reason; I worked in the charter industry for some 15 years, that was my job, and I'm still in touch with it.Anyway, phone a few Greek charter firms. You can go to Greece with no quals at all.
Yes, you can go to Greece with no quals at all. As crew.
However, charter papers will not be issued unless the skipper offers proof of competence acceptable to the port police. Same in Croatia. Same in Turkey.
And Cruising permits will not be issued unless a skipper of a visiting yacht produces acceptable proof of nationality of the vessel. And a certificate of third party insurance. And passports. And radio licence. And radio operator's cert.
"No docs". What utter, misleading, tosh you write! Irresponsible.
Really? who said I was referring just to ICC? Your one track mind thinks "docs" only refer to ICC?Nice attempt to distract attention away from SSR's though.
