Hi Chuck, my ROC is not linked to a boat and I can use it with any charter yacht. Croatia wants to have at least one person on board of each boat with a VHF license.

Hi Chuck,

I referred to what you need for a charter boat. I also never had to show any license to someone else than the charter company.

From where are you and what kind of licenses do you already have?
HUM -- that seems strange - we sailed in on our boat and only thing we had to show was our boat papers - they did not ask for a license or anything else. and if I am correct the vhf license goes with the boat not the person - now the ssb license is for the person but not sure of the vhf license --

this seems very strange to me


folks you want to charter need to contact someone like EuroMarine in Dubrovnik to find out what they want -

Yes you're right. Just the water temperature is not really compatible to me in May ;-)

Hi Flo - it´s not only the wind, everything is better before high season! (except party life, maybe :-). Free spaces in ports and marinas, no waiting in restaurants, lonely anchoring in quiet bays....and yes, certainly, some fresh winds for sailing. Don´t worry, you´ll manage to wait a few weeks :-)

New season has started in Croatia. Best time to sail there is from now until end of June. Spring on the Islands is wonderful.
I´m looking Forward to set sails in two weeks from Split.

In Croatia you need a license for each boat with engine.

Boat Skipper A is for boats up to 7m (~21ft) length, and not more than 8kW power.

Boat Skipper B is for boats up to 30 Gross-Tonnage. I blelieve this is what you'll need. This license can be obtained if you're 16 or older. Trainings are available in Croatia on Saturday and Sunday with examination on Sunday afternoon. Costs are approximately at 2000 Kuna (=HKR = approx. 280 USD) for such a training weekend. If you's familiar with Seamanship this should be a more than easy thing.

Boat Skipper C is similart to B but for commercial purposes

Yachtmaster A for up to 100 GT

However Croatia should also accept each ICC document (International Certificate of Competence), but this applies only for countries who implemented UN Resolution 40. Which is not the case for US.

Hope this helps!
