The Catamaran Fleet
The current Catamaran Fleet Captain is Mick Steer.
About the Fleet
The Catamaran fleet is made up of boats ranging from the Sprint 15 to Formula 18
A number of the boats either race or sail with an asymmetric spinnaker, which helps increase downwind performance.
All boats in the Handicap Catamaran fleet are in accordance with Club Boat Limits.
There are a number of catamaran makes including: Dart, Hobie, Nacra, Hurricane and Prindle.
The Catamaran fleet is split based on performance and sailing characteristics, racing with the medium or Fast/Asymmetric fleets.
Racing takes place on Sundays and Wednesday afternoon and evening (light permitting), as well as informal racing on Saturdays.
Catamaran racing is rated under the P.Y. system which assures a fair result for all competitors.
We are very fortunate having a significant number of RYA Catamaran Instructors who not only instruct but also sail and race catamarans themselves. As an official RYA training centre courses in catamaran sailing can be given at any level and it is our suggestion that if this area of sailing interests you, for you to either come along and talk with one of the sailors on 'cat-alley' or to book a taster session through the office.
The Club has two Dart 16s and one Topaz 16 for training purposes.
