About Hobie Catamarans

Catamaran sailing is immensely fun! In a great many respects sailing a dinghy and sailing a catamaran are the same thing but the design and operation of a catamaran can make for a lot more thrills and action than regular monohull sailing.


Hobie Cat Sailing

As catamarans have two hull’s they are more stable and can carry a lot more sail area, making them very fast for their length. The two catamran hulls are separated by cross bars with a ‘trampoline’ stretched across them on which the crew sits when they are not trapezing. A trapeze is a line attached to a high point on the mast to which crewmembers attach themselves, that enables then to ‘sit out’ of the catamran to provide extra weight on the catamrans leeward hull allowing the sailboat to travel faster through the water in strong wind.
