There are many different types of charterers who hire catamarans in the Whitsundays. There are those who have substantial power boat experience but no practical sailing experience, those that have been sailing all of their life but not recently and those that have never been on a catamaran in their life. Whatever category you fall into, there are plenty of pre training options to assist so you are prepared for your catamaran charter.
From 1 to 5 day courses, pre training courses are designed to make you comfortable and confident with hiring your own catamaran.
The Prepare to Charter Course is best suited to people who just need to brush up on their sailing skills or need to obtain recent sailing experience.
The Competent Crew Course is best suited to people who have no experience at all and want to hire a catamaran in the Whitsundays. It is a very comprehensive course and very beneficial for those with no experience.
