Catamaran sailing on the twin-trapeze Topaz 16cx

Catamaran sailing on Lake Garda: Our Topper Topaz 16CX being used by instructors and guests in strong winds on Lake Garda rigged with a mylar main and jib and with its easily controlled black gennaker.

A twin trapeze catamaran that's equally at home as an extreme sailing catamaran for two experienced sailors or as a training catamaran for up to four people. Using its Dacron "school" sails and without the gennaker it's a perfect starter catamaran for adults or teenagers.

For larger sailors wanting to rent a great catamaran there's our Hobie 18 Pacific with or without gennaker and, for catamaran sailing courses only, we have access to the Formula 18 Hobie Tiger.

As an RYA training centre, we recommend that those new to sailing begin by learning how to sail a dinghy, before discovering the different techniques and issues with catamarans and we offer short conversion courses for those who have already learned dinghy sailing.
