Catamaran Training Weeks - Get your sailing season off to a flying start this summer!
We are pleased to share with you this years dates for our annual catamaran training weeks. These weeks are a wonderful opportunity to pick up a new tips and tricks to bump-start your sailing season. Enjoy sailing our fleet of high performance catamarans in the warm waters of the Med.
Our Catamaran training weeks this year run over two weeks: 13th and 20th May. Each week there will be 5 days of ‘intensive’ training giving you a chance to learn from the experts, both on and off the water with exercises on the water and video feedback on land at our beachside bar.? These training weeks are available to anyone with at least a year’s club racing experience.
Both of the week will be run by our hugely experienced beach manager, Joe Bennett, who has competed regularly in World and European Championships in the Tornado and Hobie F18 Tiger class, finishing just off the podium at his last Tiger foray in Lake Garda. Joe’s unique teaching style both on and off the water will bring smiles to everyone’s face, and his top tips will guarantee that you’ll be headed home with some new skills under your belt, ready to get on to the start line at your local club or championships.
Here's a taster of some of Joe’s teachings - how to work the spinnaker when it’s pretty windy!
Or, maybe you’d prefer Joe’s high speed Tornado cut….
As you’ll see if you go onto any of Joe’s videos he has his own channel – with a load of fascinating instructional tips as well as a rather eclectic selection of ‘entertainment’ videos.
Whatever you sail at home you’ll find something suitable from our fleet that includes:
2 x Tornados
