Inclusive Catamaran Sailing

Once you’ve attended our compulsory Safety Briefing at the beginning of the week feel free to hop on a cat and go for a blast.  If you’re already a competent dinghy sailor just make your way down to the beach and our friendly beach team will rig and prepare the catamaran for you. 

Whenever there are boats on the water, our safety team are out on patrol in the rescue craft. Help, support and friendly encouragement are always available.

On windier days, we offer blasts around the bay with one of our RYA qualified team. This is great If you don’t yet feel confident enough to take a ‘cat’ out for a spin by yourself.

Inclusive Support Clinics

We are delighted to offer free beginner sessions to all our guests staying at the beach club. Throughout the week, we’ll help you to progress by improving your technical knowledge and practical skills on the water.

Inclusive support clinics take place most days, just check the beach info boards for further details.  After some fun land drills and a safety brief, novice sailors will quickly get to grips with the simple controls on a cat.

We also offer intermediate sessions for those looking to get to grips with catamaran sailing. Our team will take you through the basics of handling the Cat and will quickly progress towards more skilled techniques in moderate winds.

Intermediates

If you can confidently execute all the basics of sailing, including tacking and gybing and sailing a triangular course, our team will aim to get you comfortable and confident sailing in moderate winds. These sessions are condition dependent and cover rigging the cat, parts of the boat, ways of improving your overall technique and how to sail faster.

Advanced Sailors

Already an experienced dinghy sailor? We offer advanced clinics, including using the trapeze, managing waves and handling the Cat in stronger winds. Our team need the right conditions to demonstrate these techniques effectively, so sessions are planned around the wind and daily forecast. 

Regatta days

At the end of the week it’s race day time.  All sailing abilities are welcome to take part in one of our regattas at both Lixouri Bay and Stira Bay. We operate a simple handy-cap system that allows a fair race for all participants, no matter what boat you choose. Come along to the safety brief, grab a boat and enjoy a fun afternoon racing around buoys. It’s all very informal and always ends with a few beers in the beach bar.

Kit list

Both beach clubs offer well-maintained kit. It’s all ready to go so you can hit the water. Feel free to get in touch if you have specific questions about the kit. Scroll down to see the current list of catamarans.
