What is catamaran sailing?
Catamaran is a type of boat (or occasionally ship) consisting of two hulls joined by a frame. Catamarans can be sail or motor-powered. The word catamaran comes from the Tamil language, in which the word kattumaram means “logs bound together”. The catamaran was the invention of the paravas, a fishing community in the southern coast of Tamilnadu, India.
In later times, catamarans (also known as cat boats) have been used for fishing and transport in the coastal waters of New England and New York. Around the turn of the 19th century they were adapted for racing. Today the main use of the catamaran is for day sailing and leisure cruises.
How is it different from normal sail boats or monohull sailing boats?
catamarans don’t really heel over. This makes the entire sailing experience different; the motion of the boat is different, you have to trim the sails differently, and pay attention to other factors that you might not be used to. In light wind and upwind sailing conditions, it can be harder to make headway. When the wind is strong, because the boat doesn’t seem to “react” to the wind, it can be more challenging to tell when you are overpowered and need to reef. In heavy weather (which most casual sailors tend to avoid) a catamaran can be a liability, though with the proper training they can be handled safely. When the conditions are right, catamarans are sweet sailing, smooth performing, and comfortable, so it’s no surprise that more and more of them are appearing in the world’s best sailing destinations
