Courses are run over a 4-day period in the Langebaan Lagoon. It includes the basics of rigging the Hobie to physically getting on the Hobie for the first time, de-rigging, safety, capsizing and righting to skippering the boat. Our qualified instructors are with you every step of the way.
Dragoon Sailing: The Dragoon is a Hobie Cat Europe design, manufactured to meet the French Sailing Federation requirements for 12-14 year olds to learn and compete on a catamaran. Being an entry-level catamaran the objectives were essentially to keep costs to a minumum, to maximise safety and increase the performance potential of the Dragoon.
