RYA Catamaran tuition, we offer both RYA Structured courses and personal coaching, on either our dart 16 or on your own boat, for beginners through to club racing.
We also offer a Catamaran Endorsement, this course is designed as a conversion from mono hull to multi hulls boats.
We understand that 1, 2 or 3 hulls makes no difference, they are all sailing boats that can be enjoyed by sailors. Catamarans are just the same, you just need to use slightly different techniques.
Catamarans are a more stable platform compared to a dinghy, but they will capsize if heeled over too far or pitch-pole if bow buoyancy is overcome. Because they are stable and light weight catamarans offer fast and exhilarating sailing and can be great fun.
Fewer clubs offer training to learn to sail catamarans inland, because their high speed and lack of manoeuvrability require a larger area of water. We are lucky at Rutland Water that we have the largest man-made lake in Europe as for you to learn on. Allied with our expertise we can give you sound training in an enjoyable environment.
The RYA believes that it is important that you should learn to sail a catamaran properly and take a suitable RYA course to make sure that you have the necessary skills. There are not many catamaran qualified instructors and most sailing clubs being unable to offer this type of training.
