The joy of sailing
When you're at the helm of a sail boat, you form a unique partnership with your vessel, challenging the sea with your skills and instincts alone.
There are those who thrive on the thrill of speed, fine-tuning their sails at every opportunity to coax every ounce of power from their sail boat. Then there are those who savor the peaceful rhythm of the sea, letting their yacht run smoothly under the caress of the wind and the lullaby of the waves, fully immersed in the serenity of nature.
Sailing carries an irresistible allure, but one sensation it offers stands out — a profound sense of 'freedom.' The joy of interpreting the winds under the vast, open sky and navigating your sail boat through the dance of the waves is a feeling beyond words. But if one could capture it in a single word, it would undoubtedly be 'liberation.'
Sailing may seem straightforward, but it's an experience with a remarkable depth that surprises and delights. And that's exactly what makes it so captivating!
A catamaran, or twin-hull boat, is a uniquely designed vessel with two hulls connected side by side by a deck. In terms of functionality, a catamaran yacht uses sails mounted on the deck to harness the power of the wind, facilitating smooth sailing across the water. One key feature of a catamaran is its deck space, made possible by its dual-hull structure. This design also provides stability while sailing, minimizing the boat's tilt and enhancing its safety compared to single-hull yachts. Furthermore, the streamlined shape of the hulls contributes to the catamaran's overall sailing speed, making it a suitable option for those who value efficiency.

The MiniCat catamaran, crafted in the Czech Republic, is a nifty, compact, and incredibly lightweight inflatable yacht. Packaged in a dedicated carrying bag, it can be conveniently stored in your home, garage, or even a hotel room, ready for easy transportation. The portability extends to various travel modes – it fits comfortably in a camper van, aboard a mid-sized boat, or even within airplane luggage restrictions. This means you can bring sailing to your travel adventures with ease. Plus, unlike traditional yachts, you don't need to worry about docking or mooring fees. When the sailing urge strikes, you just have to retrieve your MiniCat from its storage, pop it in your car, and off you go to the sea!

I had very little experience when I started sailing my MiniCat in 2020. I had two main concerns, storage during the typhoon season and the risk of getting stuck somewhere in the shallow waters of the Ishigaki island coral reef.
The MiniCat solves these issues, and if at first I thought it would be to the price of reduced performances, it is not. The MiniCat is easy to learn with, fast, scalable with multiple accessories (love the gennacker in low winds), and it definitely looks nicer than most sail club mini catamaran. I can't say for other environments, but it's just the perfect mini catamaran for sailing coral reefs in tropical climate with kids and friends.
Now I also offer sail tours to my holiday villa customers, and I have nothing but exceptional feedback on the experience.
