MedSkippers welcomes the Italian and Spanish national associations of professional skippers

11 Feb 2021

The MedSkippers project signed a cooperation agreement with the Associazione Skipper Professionisti Charter & Vela and the Asociación Nacional de Patrones Profesionales de Embarcaciones de Recreo, Italian and Spanish national associations of professional skippers to merge forces and move forward towards the recognition of professional skipper licenses internationally. 

Thanks to these cooperation agreements we expect to pave the way towards bilateral agreements between countries in the Western Mediterranean area, where national regulations about the charter activity and skipper licensing system have a certain degree of similarity. The achievement of such agreements could be a turning point in the recognition of professional skippers licenses among EU Member States, becoming a precedent to be replicated in other countries along the entire Mediterranean Sea Basin.
