Betsy - Maybe I just don't get it, but your question doesn't make any sense to me.

Are you a British Citizen? Do you have a commercial Yachtmasters Certificate. If not it not going to happen.

bubb2,

I think you've answered my question, but to be sure, let me clarify.

I want to pay a private yacht owner in the BVI to take me sailing and be my captain. Does he have to have a captain's license? Does he have to have any special permits or licenses issued by the BVI authorities to do this, and if so, what are they? Is it considered a charter if I pay him?

Thanks a bunch!

If the the captan gets paid then he must be in compliance with BVI regulations including a work permit for BVI.

One question, would he be taking you sailing on his boat or on yours. If you are going on his boat, then you are doing a captained charter effectively. If you are going on your boat, you are hiring a captain. The two probably have different legal requirements.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

All I know about the BVI's is, I as a US citizen with a USCG Masters license, and a US documented vessel, I can not run charters in BVI's waters. The USVI's is a whole different story.

The BVI has just gotten a lot tougher when it comes to chartering. All commercial boats legally operating for hire in BVI waters now need special certifications including 'stability tests'. This has made it difficult for non-BVI owners and boats to charter and the fees, tariffs and other charges keep on mounting. The BVI traveltalk online forum has a couple of older threads by charter boat owners detailing the difficulties involved in staying legal for the BVI.
