THE SECRETS OF THE CATAMARAN

Today we propose one of the most popular activities in our center in Vilanova i la Geltrú. In this case, and as we are in the middle of the summer season, the “star” option of our sea activities is the CATAMARAN. Here you can learn some of the secrets of the CATAMARAN. (of this modality).

Catamarans are a very popular option due to their high stability, large space and safety. It is a type of boat made up of two boats joined by a springboard.

 

Catamarans are much safer than monohull boats, they are virtually impossible to capsize, the whole boat acts as a sort of raft, providing great maneuverability as they can make a 360 degree turn on their own length

 

Our Hobie 15 club model is an ideal catamaran as a base boat for a sailing school, a family or anyone who wants to start in this world. We could go so far as to affirm that it is the most appropriate to start.

 

The large sailing surface in relation to its 155 kilograms of weight, provides it with great power to be able to break the wave during the departure from the beach. On the other hand, the studied distribution of forces, between the main, the jib and the keels, endow it with great maneuverability at all times.

 

 

It also has a system of folding blades characteristic of Hobie, which give it a very good result. If we add to all this the lack of oars, the shape of the keel is enough to counteract the drift, we have an ideal catamaran for going in and out of the beach.
