Newsletter September 2018


Dear Tamiro Catamaran Friends

 

In case you have a problem reading this Newsletter, please click here …

The sailing season 2018 will end in 10 weeks, and we are already quite busy to prepare for the 2019 season. As most of you know, S / C TAMIRO got a younger brother in summer 2018, TAMIRO II, so a Lagoon 450F.

After an intensive period to install all gadgets into the new boat, TAMIRO II sailed from the Atlantic coast in France to Greece, and started on August 4th it’s life as a charter yacht. The feedback from the different crews who sailed TAMIRO II, is just outstanding.
 

With this newsletter, I would like to inform you about the activities on TAMIRO I and TAMIRO II, with focus on the following topics:

  • Bare-Boat & skippered Charter of TAMIRO I and TAMIRO II in Kos, Lefkas, Athens und Mykonos in 2019
  • Catamaran Skipper-Training in April 2019
  • Participation on the Catamarans-Cup 2019
  • Sail & Dive
  • Kite & Sail
  • One-Way Trips in 2019
  • TAMIRO II – a very special Lagoon 450F

 

I would like to highlight the skipper-trainings we scheduled in April 2019. Marvin Schickel, a professional Catamaran Skipper, will held two trainings which are a must for all new skippers, or skippers «in education».

 

Bare-Boat & skippered Charter of TAMIRO I and TAMIRO II

Even though TAMIRO I is already in its fifth season, the boat is in good shape. In the last two years, many new gadgets have been installed in TAMIRO I, making TAMIRO I still one of the most attractive catamarans in the Aegean. Among other things, the boat was equipped with a permanent WIFI and four large OceanLED underwater lights.

 

TAMIRO I will be stationed in Kos until June 2018, after which it will be available in the Ionian Sea from the charter base Lefkas.

 

TAMIRO II enters its second season and will be available for charter from April to the end of October in Kos. TAMIRO II is already well booked in the high season. If you are interested in sailing the new boat, then you should not wait much longer.

You can find information about the availability of the two catamarans at www.tamiro-catamaran.com/charter.php.

 

Both boats are available as «bare-boats» or «skippered». We recommend for less experienced crews to hire a professional skipper from us, which ensures that your holidays are relaxed.

Catamaran Skipper-Training in April 2019

 

 

In April 2019, we will carry out two skipper trainings for catamaran skippers. The first training will take place from Friday 6th to Monday 9th April 2019, the second from Monday 9.4 to Thursday 12.4.2019.

In these two training sessions, the handling of a catamaran is trained on the open sea and in the harbour. A recommended training for new or aspiring skippers.

We will discuss the following topics during training:

Concept of catamaran sailing, catamaran characteristics, putting and recovering the mainsail, refs 1, 2 and 3; Technique and theory of reefing, manoeuvring with two engines, applying 'Roman Catholic', how and when to use a stern anchor, mooring and mooring on a buoy, right mooring, mooring 'long side', mooring with side wind, knots, right mooring / Anchor of a catamaran (taking into account wind, depositing, etc.), use of a water-maker (desalination plant), use of a mast chair

The training is carried out by a professional skipper in German, but he also speaks fluent English.

Details can be found in the attachment to this email or on the website of Tamiro Catamaran (http://www.tamiro-catamaran.com/downloads/SkippertrainingEN2019.pdf).

Costs: EUR 850 per person (max 6 participants in the training)

ISTION Catamarans-Cup in October 2019

 

For many sailors at the top of the agenda is the annual participation in the Catamaran Cup of ISTION. TAMIRO I and TAMIRO II will participate in the Catamaran Cup in October 2019 (19.10 to 26.10.2019).


The crew for TAMIRO II is already defined. Now we are looking for a crew for TAMIRO I. Will you be a Crew member? The cost per participant (boat, boat entry fee, participation fee) is EUR 1000 / CHF 1150 per participant.

 

More information about the Cup can be found on the website of the Catamaran Cup (http://www.catamaranscup.com). For bookings, please contact me directly.

Sail & Dive

 

 

Crews can dive with TAMIRO I or TAMIRO II again in 2019. I have completed about 150 dives in the Dodecanes, the Cyclades and the Ionian Sea in the last two years. Since the information about Greek dive sites is difficult to obtain, I wrote a dive guide which describes over 30 dive sites (mainly wrecks and caverns). A copy of the guide is available from me (in PDF format). In addition, we have expanded the inventory of our diving equipment, e.g. a long filling hose, so that the bottles can be filled directly on the dive platform. Please understand that we only rent the diving equipment to crews who have at least one diver on board, who has completed a dive master or higher education.

Kite & Sail

 

 

In October 2018, Marvin Schickel, kite instructor and skipper (Facebook «Captiano Marvin»), organizes a Kite & Sail cruise with TAMIRO I. The idea is to sail from one windy beach to the next with the catamaran and in between you can rock the water with your kite. For 2019 we also plan to schedule some Kite & Sail trips. We will inform about the details later.

Trip A, B and C: Kos-Lavrion / Alimos und Lavrion / AlimosLefkas

 

In 2019, TAMIRO I and TAMIRO II will both sail to Lefkada and Corfu. The crews for the overpass trips of TAMIRO II are defined, for TAMIRO I there are still possibilities to sail the boat from Kos to Lefkas, or a part of it.

 

The plan is to sail the route from Kos to Lefkas in two trips (cruises) with two different crews. A first trip leads from Kos to Lavrion / Athens, then a second from Lavrion / Athens to Lefkas (through the Strait of Corinth).

 

Both segments are each about 200 nautical miles long and are therefore ideal to collect nautical miles. Regarding data for the project "TAMIRO I to Lefkas" we are still flexible, but it would be ideal to leave Kos on 22.6.2018 and Lavrion on 29.6.2018.

 

The price for the one-way trip per week is EUR 4500 / CHF 5100 (instead of EUR 8200), resp. EUR 8000 / CHF 9050 for two weeks (Kos to Lefkas). If there is enough demand, it is also possible to book single berths (as a mileage participant)

TAMIRO II will arrive in Lefkas on the 13th of July and will then be ready for a one-way trip to Corfu. This trip leads through a beautiful landscape with little wind and is therefore ideal for beginners or families.

The price for the one-way trip is EUR 6000 / CHF 6800.

The route from Kos to Mykonos is 110 nautical miles with detours and is therefore easy to sail in one week. There is currently also the possibility to make a two-week trip, but the crew change is fixed on 31.8 (17-31.8 from Kos to Mykonos, respectively 31.8 to 14.9 from Mykonos to Kos).

TAMIRO II – a very special Lagoon 450F

 

 

As mentioned earlier, S / C TAMIRO II joined us in the spring of 2018. The boat carries the hull number 694 and was transported on 3 May 2018 from Belleville to Les Sables d'Olonne. In Les Sables d'Olonne, I then equipped the boat with a team in two weeks. The two highlights are certainly the Solar Bimini (www.catamaran-bimini.com) developed by me, as well as the Tenderlift hydraulic platform. The platform is used in addition to a «parking» for the dinghy as a bathing and diving platform, or in the evening as a terrace for an aperitif. Also worth mentioning is the watermaker from Aquabase. Although the watermaker can only be operated with 220V, he does his job well. The 4YK model generates 240 liters or more of water per hour - empty tanks? They are filled within 3 hours. What more do you want?

In addition to these topics, we have also built a lot of electrical and electronics:

§  Underwater lights

§  Mast Lightning (Spreader Lights)

§  Digital Switches

§  Video-System for parking the boat

§  3000W 12-220V Inverter

§  Solar system that delivers more than enough electricity

§  USB sockets throughout the boat

§  Remote monitoring of the on-board electronics…

§  ... and a few other "gadgets"
