International Proficiency Certificate
European / Mediterranean Chartering Certificates
ASA is proud to offer the first International Proficiency sailing certificate available in the United States.
This certificate is useful when chartering in European / Mediterranean
waters. It serves as proof of bareboat charter competency for
Mediterranean chartering companies, many of which require the
proficiency information displayed in a different format than the
ASA Log Book.
Is it required for chartering? If so, where?
Kiriakoulis Charters accepts this certificate throughout its 300+
location charter network in the Mediterranean (Greece, Italy, Croatia,
France, Turkey and the Caribbean) as adequate proof of bareboat skipper

agencies in these countries, but greatly helps in streamlining the
paperwork. As countries differ in their requirements, travelers
should always check with their destination prior to attempting to
