8 – 15 AUGUST 2019
Ready for the Experience of a Lifetime?
No sailing experience required.
How is it possible that a bunch of non-sailors can crew a Volvo 60 in Airlie Beach Race Week?
In 2018, The Moreton Group took a chance: crewing for Hamilton Island Race Week on ‘Merit’.
None of them were sailors.
Two days’ training. Two Line Honours. A Second and a Third on Handicap. Best-dressed boat in the Prix D’Elegance.
Their guest, world-renowned speaker Dan Clarke, said it was ‘the best experience’ of his life. Which is saying something considering Dan’s done quite a lot of interesting things.
Now it’s Your Turn
What an opportunity to bring your team and take your staff to the next level.
Excellent corporate branding and marketing opportunities available (take a look at what The Moreton Group did with the mainsail!).
You’ll spend two days getting top-quality training.
Then from 8-15 August you’ll see what’s possible!

Owner/Skipper Michael Schwarzel holds a Royal Yachting Association Offshore Yachtmaster Certificate and is a qualified sailing instructor.
Experience? He’s crossed oceans, won trophies, dealt with those moments at sea you’d rather avoid, plus rebuilt ‘Merit’ almost from scratch after Cyclone Debbie. With his ‘plan, prepare, execute’ approach, even novices feel safe and have an excellent time participating on board.
