Catamaran Sailing, or 'Cat Sailing' for short is the fastest, most exciting form of small boat sailing. With a large range of Hobie Cat 16's at the centre you will learn the basics of rigging, launching, tacking, gybing, sailing upwind and sailing downwind. Sailing is run from UCPA Hyeres.
This is open for complete beginners to advanced level sailors. Several groups run at the same time, so groups are formed according to ability.
Catamaran Sailing Half Time (12 Hrs)
Half time instruction includes 12 hours of coaching over 5 days. Plenty of time to improve and also to explore the local area. Suitable for all levels.
Catamaran Sailing Full Time (23 Hrs)
Full time instruction includes 23 hours of coaching over 5 days. Allows maximum time to learn and be guided by expert instructors. Suitable for all levels. Also available as a student deal.
Water Experience (12 Hrs)
A great way to experience a number of water activities. Spend the week with lessons on windsurfing and cat sailing and spend time on activities which are not instructed; beach volleyball, beach kayak and stand up paddleboard. Plenty of time to relax on the beach.
Will vary from resort to resort - typically:
- Saturday - Optional arrival day.
- Sunday - Arrival day, check in & meet other participants. Free day to explore the local area or relax on the beach.
- Mon - Fri - Practice with your instructor. Normally Wednesday is just a 1/2 day of instruction.
- Saturday - Departure day, morning free time, enjoy lunch, clear your room & say good bye (till the next time)
One of the nicest things about a UCPA holiday is the social aspect - it's a great way to meet new people through sharing good sporting times together. Whether you travel by yourself, or with friends you're sure to make some great new friendships through the week.
