15 years of experience have helped us to perfect a teaching method which allows our students to learn quickly and efficientlyeverything that the need without any time lost on trivial sailing details.
Lucas, inventor of the MadMax skipper training method, uses his 20 years of infinite experience to follow each student personally throughout the course, transferring all of his knowledge and experience about the world of charter to the new skipper.
All the promoted Skippers will be proposed to the best charter companies that have chosen MadMax Skipper School as the school of reference to hire their skippers.
During the first season the new Skippers will sail in areas where Skipper MadMax already operate, so that they can be supported in any situation.
BECOME PART OF AN ELITE GROUP
We are a strong, united and competent group, that takes its professional and exclusive service on board vessels from all around the world.
If this is your dream, join us and become a part of the most elite skippers!
“The course that opens the doors to the world of charter. With us, once finished the course, the collaboration starts!”
If you are asking yourself how to become a skipper, this is the course for you.
This school was created to fulfil the need for qualified, professional and competent skippers of charter companies; a course created, formatted and executed using the decade of experience and requirements of a charter company, MadMax charter is not a sailing school!
MadMax charter teaches its skippers with a 21 day full immersion course, living on board the catamaran, using actual experiences, replicating a typical holiday, inserting real technical and practical events and problems which could occur on board, resolving them in real time.
Furthermore the students will spend tens of hours performing maneuvers in the bay and the port at the limit of conditions, resolving the thousands of variable situations the sea can present.
Our students will deal with many issues, all very real, there are no theoretical explanations thrown in for brevity; For example, when we explain how to fix the little electric motor on the toilet, we first dismantle the toilet and motor because this is what the skipper would find in reality, then he will be shown how to fix it, quickly, between one stop and the next.
To this end, each student will receive a ‘trolley’ tool kit, containing the tools required to fix most of the problems that can occur on board a vessel.
Another case containing epoxy resin, mats, underwater putty, welder, drill, angle grinder, and sail repair kit will complete the equipment (included in the price) supplied to those who complete the course, qualified at that point to enter the world of charter.
The MaxMax skipper, hired by the charter company, will go on board with their own tool kit and repair materials ready for action, representing a highly specialized professional, person not yet present in the nautical sector.
Figures speak louder that promise: In the last 13 years more than 500 students have signed up for our skippers course, some did not graduate, but all those who did became qualified skippers and were employed aboard our companies fleet of catamarans.
• SUMMARY OF THE TOPICS ADDRESSED
• Harbour docking rules • Maneuvering in a port and harbour in challenging conditions • Navigating a catamaran in borderline conditions • Planning an itinerary based on meteorological conditions • On board equipment maintenance • Using epoxy, polyester resins and sealants • Sail repair • Electrical and hydraulic systems • Working on electrical and desalination motors • Working on petrol and diesel motors • Behavior on board with guests
This school was NOT formed with the intention of teaching someone something without a clear goal, on the contrary it is a sort of employment office that guarantees the placement of a qualified skipper into a charter company, a professional formed with specific behavioral attributes.
All the successful graduates will be placed into the charter company circuit as qualified skippers by MadMax Charter.
The Madmax skippers school is a point of reference for those who want their abilities to be recognized and at the same time it is a pool from which charter companies can source a high quality skipper who has been trained to the highest professional and behavioral standards guaranteeing a season without problems.
