Catch the rudder, you are going at full speed!
The Catamaran, being so light and having slight contact with the water on sailing, are capable of reaching big speeds even with moderate winds, like the ones that blow during the whole season in Playa de Muro where is placed our sailing school in Mallorca. Once you have dominated the craft to beginner level, you can move on to an improvement course where besides experimenting and learning speed techniques, you will be able to experience new feelings.
The crafts that we use allow us to ripple the sails, so that we can reduce the surface used depending on the age, level and weight of the pupils. Hereby, in spite of enjoying thermal constant winds we will be able to adapt the Catamaran according to the type of course given. More demanding maneuvers like sailing with harness in the trapeze, even taking the rudder for crew member, the feeling of hanging by the harness over the water at full speed, maneuvering the changing of direction by or gybing in a quick and technical way or to glide to the length not only with the wind but also being helped by the waves.
Also for the boldest we will hoist the third sail type Genakker being able to reach a maximum speed, even overtaking the wind. With this course you will not only be capable of renting Catamarans by your self, but you will be able to do it in the most demanding wind and sea conditions.
Our professional instructors’ equipment guarantees learning in a safe and entertaining way, because they have great experience, and the most important thing: we like sailing! The sailing school brings several years of working with Catamarans Hobie Cat 15 and Hobie Cat 18 Pacific, known for their beautiful crafts manship. The arranged meetings can last up to 2h with a maximum of 2 pupils per craft, managing to send out several Catamarans simultaneously. Hereby, we can assure you that you will have tried all our varied available boats and having done all the navigation positions.
