Catamaran sailing

A catamaran is made up of two hulls connected by a deck. Unlike single-hull boats, catamarans are often equipped with planing hulls, which means that they can also sail in very light winds. Catamarans are fast, versatile boats, suitable for both beginners and experienced yachtsmen.

CST has four "RS Cat 14" catamarans. This particular type of boat offers a perfect introduction to catamaran sailing.
The "Topaz 14" has space for two juniors and is more stable, spacious and comfortable than single-hull boats.
This boat is ideal for beginners as you can venture out onto the lake without the risk of capsizing. What's more, these boats can be sailed in very little wind.
In addition, the boat's controls are easy to learn and can be quickly mastered.
