The first time we chartered with Moorings, I went to the "information breefing", or whatever they call it. Most of it consisted of Moorings staff giving customers basic training on how to use a boat. "Push the button to start, push lever forward to drive, pull rope to raise sail". It really seemed like most of them heard it for the first time (and, judging by how they made out later, they didn't take much of that advice to heart).
So, don't worry, just pull out your credit card, pay and go sailing. If you can step aboard a sailboat and not fall in the water - you are properly qualified to charter.
Note: while the above may have seemed like sarcasm, I was actually serious. Seriously.
