I think what he means is if you go to the school and have never received any prior certifications (for example, ASA bareboat certification or keelboat certs), can you take an on-the-water test (challenge) to be considered a higher level sailor and be a captain on the boat vs. crew.

Good question, but I actually meant that if I go to the islands and want to charter a boat(not lessons), can I captain without the certs by showing them that I can do it? Not specifically directed at G.

Those Grand Suprises look like quick boats for there size, and fun too! Maybe like a J105 in stature? or maybe a 100?

I know Jeaneau has a SF3200 coming out, that is supposidly a half of a open 60, designed by Daniel Adriu IIRC, same person whom did the JOD35. None produced as of yet, but should be quick from the pics. Doubt any will get here to the states, due to teh cost of shipping etc.

This could be fun when the ship of $$$ comes in. Most schools on this side seem to use cruiser style boats, not true race machines like those.

Oh well, just another reason to go over there, other than to see the land sites as spouse wants to do. Need to get her to greece, she is 1.4, as she says, the most important 1/4! There should be some charter area's there, along with lessons........hmmmmmmmm.........

This is the beauty..
YOU DON'T NEED ANY CERTIFICATION WHEN YOU GET IN.

You will leave with European's basic Skipper certification, allows you to sail all over the World, coastal up to 7 miles from the coast, 12 miles each side of a harbour and boats up to 13,5 meters (47") in europe, but coastal outside EU waters. BUT you need to sit an exam, show the examiner basic boat handling skills (the Navy guy goes out in a dinghy, and everyone sails around him, does a few tacks and he is happpy).

What you do is you arrive on a Sunday, start sailing on monday, 6 to 8 hours a day, with breaks for lunch, and then by Friday...you will race 4 times in the day, and 4 times on sunday...Monday you're outta there, with 4 regatas, and a basic skipper European cerification...what is it equivalent to in the US..I don't know..

I tell you...their boats are 3 feet from mine...they seem pretty happy the pepole they have there...
