Berth Control is returning!
When:  Wednesday, April 27th, 2016
6:45 pm – Boat Handling Seminar  
7:00 pm – Competition Begins

Where:  ICT / Yacht Chandlers Facility

750 W Sunrise Blvd, Fort Lauderdale

Visitors are invited to come and take the controls of ICT’s mini megayacht, Lady Ameli!
You can maneuver the obstacle course, race against the clock and network with fellow yacht crew.
‘Lady Ameli’ is a remote control 2.27 meter/ 8 foot mini replica of a megayacht. The yacht handles in a very similar way to a full size vessel measuring 130 to 150 feet long. The controls are also very similar to those found on the bridge of a large yacht and include rudder, individual throttle controls, and bow thruster.

The event will consist of teams of 3 competing against each other and against the clock.  Prizes will be awarded to the top 3 teams with the best overall scores.

Participants can call to pre-register their team at 954.779.7764 or they can when they get to the event!
