Certificate of Competence

I read on another web site (Jimmy Cornell''s Noonsite) that some European countries require the skipper of a visiting yacht hold a "Certificate of Competence". It appears, based on an on-line search that one must be a British subject or resident in order to qualify for a Certificate of Competence. I have taken courses offered by the American Sailing Association through ASA 108, Offshore Passagemaking. If I turn in the answers to a number of essay questions for ASA 108, I will have passed all of the courses. Is completion of ASA courses (plus a number of years of sailing experience) accepted as "proof" of competence?

Thanks

Bruce

Bruce, look below this thread for the Info on French Ports thread. You''ll find a bit of a discussion on the ICC there.

The short verison is that ICCs are issued in Europe by EU member-affiliated organizations, but that bringing your USA certification (e.g. ASA certificates), presuming you have a USA passport, should suffice. If asked, point to those certificates and say ''We privatized ICCs in the U.S.'' <g>
