The sun splashes coral paint against the entire bay… That lifting, peaceful, tranquil state of afternoons reminds you once again of your strong ties to life. Those waves softly licking the sands, as if to call to adventure. You heed the call of the Mediterranean… Calling you to discover it, set sail towards the horizon. Your hair flows around in the soft breeze. The time has come. Go ahead, set sail…
A brand new experience fromHillside Beach Club: Trimaran. A sail-driven yacht, trimaranscomprise a main hull and two smaller outrigger hulls. On a trimaran, not only will you enjoy the ride but also have a unique experienceexploring the bay where Hillside Beach Club is located.
A short glimpse at history tells us indigenous Polynesians and other Pacific islandersbuilt the first trimarans almost 4,000 years ago. The term “trimaran” is a 20th century word, the merging of “tri” and “catamaran.”Sailing catamarans and trimaransgained popularity in the 1960s and 70s. Compared to other sailing crafts, trimarans are known for their ability to float with more ease and perform much better in low winds than high. Today, various lengths of trimarans are built, at times used for hauling loads. The Hillside Beach Club was the first in Turkey to import a trimaran from France.
Truly a recreational craft, trimarans are not required to be operated by licensed sailors. Some experience in sailing is all you need to do well on a trimaran. With no sailing experience, you are only one hour away from a fun adventure—we have got your training covered!
Hillside Beach Club sports three trimarans: two “adventure island”s and one “adventure tandem” are at your service for a memorable experience. So be our guest—heed the Mediterranean’s call, watch the sunset on a trimaran, sail through golden glimmer in turquoise waters. Happy discoveries!
