  • What are the sailing practices of nautical qualifications?

    If you already have a nautical title and you'd like to govern sailboats of more than six meters in Spain (those of less length do not require any title) you'll need to obtain this certificate. The sail boat sailing qualification practices is regulated by Royal Decree 875/2014, of October 10. It sets which is the program and the requirements that the course should follow. 

    It is necessary to do an internship aboard a vessel of an approved school. The titles that can be enabled to govern sailing vessels are all except of the "titulin" or navigation license:

    - Basic Navigation Pattern (GNP)

    - Recreational Boat  Pattern (PER)

    - Yacht Pattern (PY)

    - Yacht Captain (CY)

    You'll only need to do the sailing training practices once. This rating is voluntary, it is only necessary if you want to sail with a sailing boat.
