Turkey trots out new fines for non-ticket yachtsmen

Those who sail without an Amateur Seaman's Certificate will be fined a penalty of 2,500 Lira (£700) in Turkey, IBI Magazine reports.

New regulations for private boats and yachtsmen in Turkey have been published in the Turkish Official Journal.

The same penalty will be issued to those who do have an Amateur Seaman's Certificate but are sailing for commercial purposes.

Turkish citizens wanting to obtain the certificate have to complete an online learning program and pass an online exam provided by the state.

The state can authorise some institutes or organisations to give training for this exam or to organise the exams themselves.

The exam includes at least 50 questions about sailing, meteorology, safety, technical issues, marine communication, marine law and international regulations.
