Hunter's do ask that anyone hiring any of their Sailing Fleet has adequate sailing experience. Very good dinghy sailors are welcome and the yard takes the trouble to make you familiar with the rigging and various nuances associated with these yachts. If you are at all concerned about taking out a yacht without an engine for the first time, try to take advantage of the 'Hunter Experience' as an introduction to the Fleet - contact the yard for further details..
