Sailing and Cat Blasts

Once you’ve attended our compulsory Safety Briefing at the beginning of the week feel free to hop on a cat and go for a blast.  If you’re already a competent dinghy sailor just make your way down to the beach and our friendly team of instructors will rig and prepare the catamaran for you. 

Whenever there are boats on the water, our safety team are out on patrol in the rescue craft. Help, casual tuition and friendly support are always available.

On windier days, we offer blasts around the bay with one of our RYA qualified instructors. This is great If you don’t yet feel confident enough to take a ‘cat’ out for a spin by yourself,

inclusive Tuition sessions

We are delighted to offer free beginner sessions to all our guests staying at the beach club. Throughout the week, we’ll help you to progress by improving your technical knowledge and practical skills on the water.

Inclusive group sessions take place most days, just check the beach info boards for further details.  After some fun land drills and a safety brief, novice sailors will quickly get to grips with the simple controls on a cat.

We also offer intermediate sessions for those looking to get to grips with catamaran sailing. Our instructors take you through the basics of handling the Cat and will quickly progress towards more skilled techniques in moderate winds.

Intermediates

If you can confidently execute all the basics of sailing, including tacking and gybing and sailing a triangular course, our instructors will aim to get you comfortable and confident sailing in moderate winds. These sessions are condition dependent and cover rigging the cat, parts of the boat, ways of improving your overall technique and how to sail faster.

Advanced

Already an experienced dinghy sailor? We offer advanced clinics, including using the trapeze, managing waves and handling the Cat in stronger winds. Our instructors need the right conditions to teach these techniques effectively, so sessions are planned around the wind and daily forecast.
