The Antigua & Barbuda Department of Marine Services (ADOMS) have announced they will accept RYA Yachtmaster (Sail) Scheme qualifications as qualifying certificates for the issue of Boatmaster Licences as laid down in the IMO Caribbean Small Commercial Vessel (SCV) Code Annex 11, which covers ALL Caribbean countries.
This is good news for budding Commercial Skippers, not only in Antigua, but throughout the Caribbean.
The scope of cross qualification acceptance will be as follows:
SCV Boatmaster Grade 1 can be granted in general for holders of:
– RYA Advanced Powerboat Certificate commercially endorsed with S.T.C.W. Basic Safety Training (for power boats only). Unfortunately Second Star Sailing does not offer the Advanced Powerboat Certificate except on special occasions. We do offer Power Boat Level 2 regularly, which is a necessary step towards the Advanced Level.
– Yachtmaster Coastal or Offshore Certificate , Commercially Endorsed with S.T.C.W. Basic Safety Training
– Yachtmaster Ocean, Commercially Endorsed, with S.T.C.W. Basic Safety Training and S.T.C.W. endorsed (or with separate STCW BST)

Other equivalencies may be granted on specific request.
SCV Boatmaster Grade 2/3 can be granted in general for holders of:
RYA Day Skipper, and Coastal Skipper, with further requirements, such as medical fitness and S.T.C.W. Basic Safety Training
