First experience dealing with bareboat yacht charter? Some tips that might be useful before you officialy embark :

1. Go for a sloop : a schooner, a yawl and a cutter both look like great vessels when at sea but they have 5 to 8 sails to manage. If your passengers/guests are only enthousiast beginners, it's pretty unlikely that you will maneuver correctly in windy conditions. Dealing with a jib and a bermuda mainsail is quite enough to speed at a pace of 3 nautical knots in light wind conditions. Don't hesite to use the 9.9HP or 15.0HP engine in order to cover up to 50% of the distance. Those outboard and inboard motors are quiet and not that noisy, especially if you navigate at night (it will even help your guests to sleep better). On the other hand, a spinaker and a foretriangle in front of the mast make great photo shots but don't forget that it's a lot of work to retreive it and put it in the storage bags afterwards. Do you really want to work a lot during your vacations? Also, if there is a mizzen mast on the proposed sailboat for rent, remember that it's going to reduce the room on the deck for your sailors.

2. Calm and deep waters : avoid shallow waters, it's not time for asking for help from the bareboat charter company. First, if you stuck your boat somewhere, remember that it will cost you money for getting exterior help. Two, wasting hours somewhere and waiting for the high tide to come back might upset your people.

3. Beware of the first meal : wine and party time while at sea during the first evening will turn passagers seasick and spoil the rest of your whole journey. Eat light and drink water for the first night. Ask your guests to sleep well and prepare your party for the second day, the time for everyone to get used to live on a moving boat. And avoid cooking T-bones, greasy sausages or pouring goat cheese all over your salads. Better go with shrimps, lobster and white chicken.

4. The boom is a dangerous device : don't allow anyone to stand up in the rear cockpit while you are navigating. Of course, when warned, everyone answers yeah yeah, no problem, I'm going to be careful. But the fact is that concussions remain the #1 type of injury during such vacations. When the boom swings after a mistake, you can knock out yourself as well.

5. Lift raft ready : even if you only plan coastal navigation, don't inspect anyone could swim 2 miles if the boat has to be evacuated in case of an emergency (fire, capsize, gas leaking...). Prepare your Winslow, Revere Offshore Elite or West Marine liferaft to be used and inform your sailors about the appropritate procedure. Before renting your bareboat, make sure that the life raft (ISO 9650-2 or ISO 9650-1 designation) is made to receive and pack the full crew.

6. The grocery : many bareboat chartering companies offer to buy, assemble and store your provisions on board for a 200$ or 300$ flat fee for the service. Instead of spending hours wandering in the harbour looking for food stores, your crewmembers will appreciate to have it already packed and ready to eat. Other companies also offer what they call "starter packages" which contains basic items like eggs, breads, soup cans, vegetables and several bottles of wine + beer at a special price that you won't find when buying your items in an expensive marina grocery.

7. Read about the saiboat model : take a close look at the plan, technical details and spects, especially when it comes to the electric panel and the rigging. Grab data about the anchor and electronics gear too. There is nothing more frustrating than spending hours studying the GPS map reader, the Garmin sonar and depth sensor with crewmembers surrounding you and asking if there is a problem. Go online and print the manual on several pages with your printer at home. Don't take the chance that the original manual is missing before you raise the anchor.
