Multihull Solutions Whitsunday Rendezvous - Time is fast running out to sign up for all the fun and spectacular cruising at the 2014 Whitsunday Multihull Rendezvous.

There are now only limited places still available to join the event from 1-7 September, which is now recognised as Australia’s premier power and sail multihull cruising rally. Multihull Solutions urges those who are considering participating in the event to sign up now to avoid missing out on a week they’ll never forget!


An extraordinary itinerary and a new swag of great prizes have made the upcoming 2014 Whitsunday Multihull Rendezvous the most anticipated cruising event of the year.

The 2014 itinerary and entry form is online at http://www.multihullsolutions.com.au/events/2014-whitsunday-rendezvous, and includes all the details for the week-long multihull event that is set on the sparkling waters of the Whitsunday islands.

The event itinerary has been upgraded to include even more unforgettable events including a Welcome function at Coral Sea Resort with canapes and beverages pack, a mid-week dinner event on the prestigious Keel Deck of Hamilton Island Yacht Club, the famous Whitehaven Beach Prawn and Punch Party, and a final night presentation dinner at Long Island Resort.

A fantastic array of sponsors has joined this year’s event, providing a range of amazing prizes including accommodation at Hamilton Island and Cape Gloucester Resort, an exceptional sculpture by Mojo Creations, magazine subscriptions to Cruising Helmsman and Australian Sailing & Yachting, a free lift, waterblast and hardstand from The Boat Works at Coomera, discounts on marina berthing at Abell Point Marina, premium wines from Bunkers and The Wine Shack, along with plenty of great Multihull Solutions merchandise.
The event comprises a host of casual cruising events with frequent stops for fun social functions, island exploring, bushwalking, snorkelling and relaxing.

Entry is open to all brands of power and sail multihull of any size, privately owned or chartered. For those who are keen to enter but don’t own a boat or are unable to relocate their multihull to the Whitsundays, chartering options are available through a range of Whitsunday operators.

Multihull Solutions managing director Mark Elkington said the Rendezvous continues to grow in popularity because of its formula that brings together serious sailors and leisurely cruisers in a spectacular environment.

'When you bring together a bunch of fabulous multihull enthusiasts and provide a week of great rally action, social activities and relaxation time, you know you’ve got the recipe right for a memorable event,' Mark said.

'Many of our previous Rendezvous entrants return each year, and we are also attracting many new participants who have heard how much fun the event is,' he said.

'The Rendezvous is also the perfect forum for participants to view other catamaran and trimaran brands and models, while exchanging cruising stories and multihull tips.'

The Multihull Solutions team hosts the event on a lead boat and provides valuable information on maximising the performance and handling of multihulls, as well as offering advice on getting the most from cruising experiences.

Entry details and further information on the 2014 Multihull Rendezvous can be obtained by visiting the Multihull Solutions website, emailing rachel@multihullsolutions.com.au or calling 1300 855 338 (within Australia), 0508 MULTIS (within New Zealand), or +66 8 1894 1530 (within Asia).
