What it takes to rent a boat

There are two very specific ways to rent a sailboat, each with specific responsibilities: 

In most countries, including Europe, to command a boat it is necessary to prove that you know how to do it by showing a certificate called ICC or International Certificate of Competency. That is to say, a simple certification that is recognized at the nautical school where you have obtained the license, which then accredits you as capable of driving a boat.

Recently, however, this simple certificate may no longer be sufficient to be assigned the responsibility of a boat, in many cases a certificate issued by IYT is now required, namely International Yacht Training, or equivalent bodies. After all, accidents at sea or manoeuvres in port are always very delicate operations in which the safety of several people is at stake.
