Proud to learn that former Reliance Yacht Management delivery captain and friend Conor Fogerty was first in class in this year’s OSTAR. http://rwyc.org/ostar/
From Howth, Dublin, Ireland, Conor has been sailing most of his adult life. Growing up beside the sea created a want to sail over the horizon and explore the world. Leaving Dublin in 1995, he set off with dreams of sailing round the world. He now feels more at home at sea than on terra firma. During his travels, he has amassed over 300,000 nautical miles at sea. Completing over 30 transatlantics through racing and deliveries, two round the Worlds, one three year cruise on an Oyster 70 in 2000-03, and as skipper of Cardiff Clipper in the Clipper round the world race 05/06.
Owning your own catamaran gives you the freedom to pretty much do anything and go where you like without experience or qualifications. However when you have paying passengers or guests there is a range of responsibilities and legislation that applies and designed to promote safety.
International Multihull Boat Show 2017 is coming soon.
The Multihull Show was created back in 2010 with the aim of presenting catamarans and trimarans in the water.
The original concept was to set up a version on the Atlantic coast in even years and in the Mediterranean in odd years. The first editions of the event were thus shared by Lorient (Brittany) and La Grande-Motte (South of France).
Now to suit the requirements of boat-builders, the Show is held every year in April in La Grande-Motte.

The on line service is designed to bring a raft of benefits to fleet operators, charter managers and yacht dealers worldwide.
The UK joined the United States in banning passengers travelling from airports in several countries from bringing laptops, tablets and other portable electronic devices on board with them when they fly.

At short notice Reliance Yacht Management was tasked to take over the Lagoon 450 Catamaran “Solicitude” at the commissioning dock in Les Sables d’Olonne in France for a delivery to Tortola. The boat was destined to join the Dream Yachts charter fleet in the BVI.

An expanding charter company in the British Virgin Islands uses Reliance Yacht Management for the first time for the delivery of a new Lagoon 450 catamaran from France. The Operations Manager was there to meet them and sent us her comments;
Just to let you know she is on docks safe and sound and she is beautiful, the crew have delivered her immaculately clean and tidy which is a wonderful thing. Usually they turn up very dirty! So thank you to your team looks like a great delivery thank you.
