Crossing the Pillars of Hercules has always been the dream of every sailor. This is where the new proposal designed by Mad Max Charter starts.. In fact, the Tuscan company is looking for skippers to train and hire not only for the upcoming summer season in the Mediterranean, but also for the Atlantic crossing and the Caribbean season. The next course will take place April 9-28, 2015: you will sail between Livorno and Corsica, learning not only how to best carry a catamaran, but also how to manage your crew and how to intervene in the face of any technical problems that may occur.
HOW, WHERE, WHEN TO SET SAIL FOR THE CARIBBEAN
Mad Max will organize a flotilla of catamarans that will cross the Ocean and sail all winter in the Caribbean. A navigation that will be developed in several stages. It sets sail from Italy in mid-October to cross the more than 1,000 miles of Mediterranean and the 700 to reach the Canary Islands, with stops in Almeria (Spain) and Gibraltar. Then, around November 20, the big leap across the Atlantic to the Caribbean. Mad Max Charter’s proposal foresees, for those who pass the course, engagement as skipper on one of the fleet’s catamarans; but it doesn’t end there: those who don’t pass, will still have the opportunity to spend, completely free of charge, a period on board as assistant skipper during Caribbean crossings or cruises, which will take place from December until April 2016.
