Charter a yacht and be your own skipper, sail from island to island or along an indented coastline, these are the most relaxing holidays you can imagine. Whether the Mediterranean Sea, the Caribbean or the romantic islands of the South Pacific; there are charter firms to help you on your way. These firms all require proof of ability to be the master of a vessel.

The IYT Worldwide Bareboat Skipper and VHF Operator certificates offered by Ocean Wind are internationally recognised certificates of competency that will allow you to charter a vessel worldwide. Holders of the IYT Bareboat Certificate will be eligible for the an ICC (International Certificate of Competence) which complies with UN guidelines for recreational boating.

Ocean Wind offers both courses in English and German, we provide all IYT Worldwide learning materials and exams in both languages.


Of course if you want to sit back and relax and let us do the sailing, you can charter Ocean Wind and crew. All guests are invited to do as much or as little on board. Relax as guest, get your first taste of a sailing adventure or build miles and increase your sailing experience; it's your choice.
