Requirements for bareboat charter

There are two important licenses you need to have if you want to sailing in Italy without skipper. You need to have a valid skipper license, and best thing to obtain is International Certificate of Competence (ICC) and the license to use the VHF radio. This applies to those who sail over 6 miles offshore. You must have these original permits with you on board during your charter. Also, with you on board you must have a valid crew list, verified by the local Port Authority. If some changes to your crew list occur during your charter, you must notify the nearest Port Authority of these changes as soon as possible.

Catamaran sailing in Italy

Italian coast is big and there are lot of regions with different kinds of winds and weather. It is safe to say that islands of Sardinia and Sicily tend to enjoy more wind than the Bay of Naples and the Riviera (area around Gulf of Genova) but, in general, there is a lot less during the summer months than other times of the year and yachts tend to have to motor more here than elsewhere in the Mediterranean. Generally, if you want more calm sea to sail with your catamaran, you’ll stick to Tyrrhenian Sea and areas like Gulf of Sorrento near Naples or Calabria with its beautiful ports like Tropea or Vibo Valentia. One of the most beautiful parts of Italy and places ideal for catamaran sailing is the coast of Tuscany, region known for its beauty. You can start from Livorno or Cecina and explore long Tuscan coast along with the island of Elba, place of historic importance and one of the last abodes of Napoleon. If you want to enjoy more sun you can go all the way to the south and enjoy mystical Apulia, with its great medieval history and charming little towns. You can hire your boat in Santa Maria di Leuca or some other Apulian marina.
