You are required to leave a Security Deposit (guaranty)

ways to do that:
SECURITY DEPOSIT (RSD)

withheld and the balance is returned to you.
INSURANCE FOR SECURITY DEPOSIT (NRSD)

Greek law requires that if chartering on a bareboat
basis, the Skipper must produce an original certificate or license from his
country of origin attesting his sailing qualifications and experience. This
original sailing license (not a copy) must be presented to the port
authorities during the embarkation procedure. Each sailing party should have
at least two members having sailing competence, one as skipper (license) and
the second as co-skipper (license or official statement).
If you would still like a sailing holiday but do not have the experience to
take a boat out on your own, we can arrange for you to have a skipper.
Together you will plan your route and discuss your preferences. The skipper's
fee is usually arranged with the skipper prior to the charter - approximately
150 Euro (+VAT) per day plus his food.
