THE WORLD'S FAVORITE PORTABLE SAIL BOAT THAT FITS IN YOUR CAR

MINICAT FUN FESTIVAL 2022

Only few weeks before we meet again at the beautiful lake Como in Italy.

The dates are 24th– 28th June 2022 and we already have over 100 participants registered and over 60 boats!!!!

This year it will be longer than previously and we intend to put on a true MiniCat Fun Festival with lots of races and fun competitions.

The programme is being finalized and we will publish it here in the week starting from the 6th June 2022.

We are delighted that the magazine Multihulls World are sponsoring the MiniCat Fun Festival 2022. All MiniCat sailors participating in the event will receive complementary subscription to the online version of this popular sailing publication.

PROGRAMME

Our aim is always to ensure that all MiniCat Sailors attending have fun, socialise, meet new friends and participate in the activities. Most of all we want you all to have lots of time to sail in this fantastic location, together with other MiniCat Sailors. Therefore, we aim for a chilled and relaxed environment with minimum rules and maximum fun.

However, please note that safety is always priority and your safety is your responsibility, please sail safely, please consider others and please wear a PFD when sailing.
