Summer sports: Hobie cat

Not only I had never heard of it before, but by name it seemed more like riding a cat on water rather than a mini catamaran. A fantastic summer sport, especially if you like sailing but find it difficult since you might not own a boat, you live in Cyprus and do not have a crew! If you can’t sail at all but you would really like to, this is also ideal as it sets the foundations for proper sailing. It holds maximum 2 people, and in less than 3 hours one can learn to control their catamaran in open waters. It is not only a good exercise, but also a very exciting water sport.
Upon completion one should expect to be a competent sailor in light to medium strong winds, learn how to handle a boat in all circumstances, solve problems afloat. Finally your boat handling and confidence in performance cats will certainly improve.
It might look harder than it actually is. In reality one learns to sail the cat in low to medium winds so it is much easier to control the catamaran.
What do you need? Nothing apart from your bathing suit. Equipment can be rented
How does it work? You sit on a mini catamaran with maximum another person and you control the sails to be able to use the wind as a motor.
Level of difficulty: Medium
Location: Limassol
Price: 150€ each
