Bareboating in Spain: license requirements
 
I understand that Spain has a license requirement for bareboating but I'm having trouble getting a definitive answer from the charter company on what qualifies as a "license." I am ASA 104 certified (Bareboat Cruising) and have skippered on monohulls up to 36'. I'm interested in chartering a monohull around 34' for 4 days.

Does anyone know if the ASA certification is recognized or have any experience with licensing in Spain (on the Med, around Costa Brava)?

Appreciate any advice.

Thanks!

James

You can "convert" you ASA 104 into "European / Mediterranean Chartering Certificates" which should be enough. Look at ASA website: International Sailing Proficiency Certification for Chartering from ASA
It cost ~40$, but probably worth it avoid problems.

Thanks Alex, that's great to know. $40 seems well worth it if they accept it. Thanks for the info--appreciate it!

Looks like it's $59... and you'll need 101, 102, and 104 - but otherwise info is accurate.

For anyone who might be interested: I got the proficiency certificate from ASA (need to have ASA 104, Bareboat Cruising) and it served the purpose with the charter company. Went sailing for 4 days and had a great time. Highly recommend Costa Brava!

Thank you for the update. How long it took you to get one from ASA?

About a week or so once I sent in the form and check.
