Helia 44 - Skipper training catamaran

Catamaran skipper training. You have no experience with catamarans? You want to know how to maneuver with 2 engines and 2 hulls? You want to sail on a catamaran and see the difference comparing with a sailing yacht or a motor yacht? It would may be necessary to apply to a catamaran skipper training.
From year to year catamarans are becoming more and more popular and attractive and the demand on the market is growing in 2 principal ways: charter demand & private using.

Despite this fact, still a lot a sailors or boat owners have never sailed or even been on a catamaran, and it’s for  generally those starters that our catamaran skipper training program has been created . Indeed, we think this market will still grow and that more sailors and boat owners will be interested and attracted by the catamarans and multihull.

Therefore, Ultra Sailing has decided to launch a catamaran skipper training course on catamarans using before all our huge experience in sailing school and sail teaching. As you already probably know, we are teaching and giving sailing coursed to interested people on sailing boats of all sizes from the early beginning of our activities in 1995. Through our sailing school have passed more than 1.800 participants from the entire world, some of them in the meantime became skippers and boat owners. Our reference is ISSA and the Croatian license B. We are now ready to improve our perspective to a higher level and applying to the RYA and ISPA level (very soon we hope).

Catamaran Skipper training

The main spirit of our trainings will not be to provide skipper licenses and knowledge in one step but to attract the amateurs and starters who want to learn on catamarans and one day if they to apply for the RYA certificate and become professional skipper.

What would you learn in this course?
– How to maneuver
– How to anchor
– How to berth
– How to sail
– How to use the engines
– How to open and close the sails
– How to react in specific circumstances
– How to respect the sea, the other boats and the nature
– How to communicate on a catamaran
– How to clean and prepare a catamaran
– (…) and a lot of other basic and more specific questions that appear on a catamaran than can be different from the mono-hull world.

We plan to organize few sessions already this winter on our catamaran Fountaine Pajot Helia 44. Helia 44 is a very spacious and voluminous catamaran offering 4 comfortable double cabins and 4 bathrooms for an optimal stay onboard in combination with a good shape and well-designed sailing performances.
The goal of our skipper training course is to help people who have already bought or want to buy a catamaran to be confident. The program will consist in a 4 days dense program with our professional skipper / instructor who will be there to assist, explain and teach the participants.

The next sessions that are planned:

Term: April 28th – May 2nd
Price: 895,00€/person*
