                                   SAILING RESUME FORM
Greetings from Bareboat Miami. Although Skipper qualifications for bareboat chartering is based upon
a guest´s previous sailing experience, a captain’s license or bareboating certificate is not required. To
confirm your bareboat skipper qualification, kindly complete this brief résumé and either fax it or mail it
to the address above. Our own Captain Levente will contact you with your resulting skipper status. Give
us as much pertinent information as possible so that we can assure you have the capabilities of
bareboating. When completing the résumé, keep in mind that the size of the Aventura – a 47´
catamaran – should ideally be similar in size to those you have experience handling.

Crew (Captain and First Mate if needed) are also available for hire for the duration of your charter. You
may even take advantage of our Cruise & Learn program — you charter the catamaran and for a daily
fee, our captain/instructor will teach you what you need to know to skipper your own vessel in the future.

Please keep in mind that bareboating is a hands-on vacation. We expect our bareboat skippers to be
seasoned boaters who will take care of the vessel as if it were their own: inspect the rigging and engine
room, check fluids, station a watch or put out a second anchor if conditions warrant it, and understand
the use of the equipment and systems. Navigation, chart reading and coastal piloting experience is a
must due to the presence of notoriously shallow reefs in Florida and the Bahamas. In short, bareboating
may involve getting your hands dirty. If you would rather relax than master the duties required of
bareboating, please consider hiring a crew for your sailing vacation.

Please answer completely and return as soon as is convenient.
