Can you rent a yacht in France – do I need a license?

Small boats (under a certain horsepower or length), electric boats, crewed yacht charters and gulet charters may not require a license. Larger boats or those with more powerful engines need a skipper’s license. Before you confirm your sailing trip to France, please send us a copy and we will check it for you. You need to have the original copies on board, so don’t forget to take them.
To sail in France, one of the following qualifications is necessary: • ICC (International Certificate of Competence), International, with valid Navigational and VHF licenses Prerequisites: RYA “Day Skipper Course” or complete the ICC Assessment form to prove competence from previous experience.
If you do not have a skipper license, it is also possible to rent a yacht with a skipper

Most of France lies in the southern part of the temperate zone. The subtropical zone encompasses its southern fringe. It has three different types of climate: oceanic, continental, and Mediterranean. In addition, there are of course mountainous regions, with a colder climate depending on altitude.

In the southeast, the Mediterranean climate extends over the coastal plains and penetrates the valley of the lower Rhône River. The plains of the northeast are particularly affected by a continental climate. The pure oceanic climate prevails in the northwest, especially in Brittany.

The regions bordering the Mediterranean Sea have a Mediterranean climate, with mild, rainy winters and hot, dry summers. The temperature of the Mediterranean Sea is higher than that of the Atlantic Ocean, especially in the French Riviera, where it reaches 25 °C in August. It’s a bit lower compared with other Mediterranean areas. Precipitation is heavy and tends to fall in sudden downpours. Especially in the autumn and spring, whereas summer is nearly completely dry. On the Mediterranean coast and in Corsica the amount of sunshine is good. Even in winter, there are several sunny days, while in summer the sky is often clear.

The island of Corsica has a Mediterranean climate on the coasts, with mild and wet winters, and warm or hot and sunny summers, even though it’s exposed to both the Mistal and the west wind, which can be very strong, especially in the western and southern part of the island.

The continental area, can be heated in summer by the Azores High. This brings subtropical air masses, therefore sometimes it can be hot in summer, with temperatures about 32/33 °C or above. While in winter the city is exposed to cold winds from Eastern Europe, so there may be some freezing or snowy days, with night temperatures about -6 °C.

If you want more accurate/detailed information about the weather and wind conditions, select a region from the France yacht rental destinations tab. Please search for the desired holiday destination within the region and you can find the weather tab under the city tab.
