Refresher for ICC Theory Exam

Mar 20, 2024 | Home Page Featured, Sailing

Class – 5th October – (09.00 – 16.30)

Cost €95pp (Theory Exam fee & Lunch Included)

Exam – Date TBC shortly after (18.00 – 20.00)

Max 10-12 people.

The course starts in the clubhouse at 0900. You need to be there a good half hour before to park and get yourself sorted and enrolled. Finish circa 16:30 hrs.

This is not so much a course as a revision session. There is an assumption that candidates are already good sailors of cruising boats with experience, and just need to “brush up.’ That said, you can do the theory course if you are familiar with Collision Regs and buoyage and associated topics but have simply not used any of this for a long time. It is all covered on the day.

If you are not in this category then you should sign up for the Day Skipper course being run in the NYC or enroll with one of our two sailing schools in the Bay, Irish Offshore Sailing or INSS, who carry out Day Skipper courses (5 days afloat) upon completion of which you will get an ICC automatically.

Please note this is for the Theory exam only and in order to receive the ICC you will also need to complete the practical exam. The fee for the practical exam is around €100.

What level of experience do I need to obtain an ICC
The level of experience and knowledge is around Day Skipper Level on the I.S./RYA syllabus. You should not apply for an ICC unless you feel you could safely (after practice sessions) take out a 35 foot sailing vessel with an inboard engine in moderate weather by day. This would include undocking under engine with an onshore breeze, sailing a triangular course including tacking and gybing, picking up a mooring, and likewise a man overboard (a fender). It includes being able to anchor and un-anchor and return to the dock with an offshore breeze blowing you off the pontoon. A three point turn in a confined space is also part of the exam.
