Multihull Solutions Whitsunday Rendezvous 2014 - If the rate of entries for the 2014 Whitsunday Multihull Rendezvous is any indication, this year’s event will be the most successful yet.

Multihull Solutions has had a record response to its announcement of this year’s Whitsunday Rendezvous being staged from 1-7 September, which is now recognised as Australia’s premier power and sail multihull cruising rally.

The 2014 itinerary and entry form is now online. The event comprises a host of casual events for both power and sailing multihulls, with frequent stops for fun social functions, exploring and relaxing.

The week’s calendar of social functions includes a Welcome function at Coral Sea Resort in Airlie Beach, a mid-week celebration held at the world-famous Hamilton Island Yacht Club, the famous Prawn and Punch party at Whitehaven Beach, figurehead competitions, and a fantastic Presentation Dinner on Long Island at the conclusion of the Rendezvous. Making the most of the breathtaking scenery, the week also includes activities such as island bushwalks, fishing, snorkelling and beach games.

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.

Competition again will be fierce to secure the range of prizes on offer for those who best embrace the event’s defining spirit of fun.

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.
