A CEVNI validated ICC (International Certificate of Competence) is often required for cruising Europe’s inland waters. To validate your ICC for inland waters you must take the CEVNI test, which checks your knowledge of the rules and signs that skippers of pleasure craft are expected to know and follow.
The RYA ICC CEVNI test is a short multiple-choice paper which can be taken online or at our premises.

Same as Ever- Best of the best
Christian was superb - I learnt so much
A big thank you from us Colin. We really appreciate your flexibility when we had to re schedule due to my illness, that was a massive relief. The yachts were clean, well maintained and nice to sail. Will was great as our instructor. We really enjoyed the course as a family.
Thanks for posting the Padstow harbour photo on the blog, it makes me feel proud the fly the banner!It was a brilliant week last week, from calm waters near Lundy to rough seas around Land’s end.
Just an important bit of feedback for you... our skipper, Adam Waugh was fantastic, and is a good ambassador for your company. From the welcoming text on Sunday morning asking of our arrival time, the personal welcome at the jetty. He made it perfectly clear that safety was his main concern, obviously an important point, but glad to be told it.
The week continued with his professionalism and experience, and the character mix on Galliver was perfect. This is always a worrying point for everyone. On leaving the boat, we all cleaned up, but Adam personally went the extra mile. It was immaculate, and smelt good too!
Good people are always hard to find, I would recommend his guy as a skipper!
Thanks again for a good week.
Please find my course feedback form attached.
Thank you very much for the course, also particular thanks to Gary who was outstanding!
Colin and Jon were very patient as I took some time to "get it" with chartwork. I found it very hard work and far more time consuming than I thought it would be. The online videos were very helpful when doing homework.
Great fun. Don't know how Colin remained so calm with a student parking his boat. A brilliant experience including the food.
A great course. Bev is a great instructor and gave me great support and encouragement even when things didn't quite go according to plan. Now I am truly a Yachtmaster!!
Paul was a great skipper, calm and efficient....and he can cook! This trip has given me the confidence to take my wee boat further afield.
An excellent outfit, well equipped with good boats and brilliant instructors, that is small enough to give a warm personal service but big enough to cope with the full gamut of yachting experiences.
Hi Colin Thanks for sharing this picture 🙂 Let me say once again what a pleasure was meeting you. I felt you were genuinely interested in our success and learning and treated us as friends rather than customers. Thank you All the best with sailing and life, I’m sure our path will cross again soon Stefano - Yachtmaster Offshore Candidate
Dear Colin and Jan, Thank you for forwarding the photos. I also wanted to thank you for a fantastically well organised sailing week in a beautiful location. The peace and calm is such a contrast to sailing on the south coast. The sighting of over forty seals on a sand bank was a real highlight. The instruction was clear, informed and very supportive. I particularly appreciated, as a competent crew trainee, the trust placed in me to try all the tactics expected of the yacht masters. We had a good humoured team on board, many laughs and everyone pulled their weight. Your commitment to deliver an excellent experience was underlined by the provision of very good fresh food with our instructor magically transforming into chef in between imparting sailing skills. I wish you and your family all the best and hope to see you again once I have mastered some theory and quite a few knots.
Hi Colin Just a quick email to say what a great weekend I had, Dave was great. And the food was Fantastic. Thank you
