Michigan Catamaran (Multi-hull) Sailing

Multi-hull sailing is popular in Michigan with the 16'-18' Hobie Catamarans being among the most popular choices for rentals or daysailing. The speed and openess of such boats appeal to the thrill-seekers and leisure sailors alike. The shallow draft of these boats allow them to be readily beachable along the sandy shores of the Great and inland lakes. This page provides resources for those who believe one hull is not enough.

 

Cataraman Associations

Catamaran Racing Association of Michigan. CRAM is a beach catamaran racing group that welcomes all beach launched multi-hulls. For first time racers, the registration is always waived. Races include dedicated fleets for Formula 18 and Hobie 16, and they frequently have enough boats to race dedicated fleets of Formula 16, A-cat, and Weta trimarans. Any other class of boat is welcome to race within a Portsmouth class that may be split into high and low Portsmouth classes. Look for CRAM events in the SailMichigan events section or on the CRAM website.

 

Austin Lake Catamaran Association - Located on Austin Lake in Kalamazoo County, this organization boasts more than 50 members with an active Hobie 16 fleet (Fleet 519). They sponsor/host Hobie 16 and Portsmouth handicap regattas.
