Day sailing is sailing with sailers that do not have a cabin, such are for example Optimist, Laser,
Europa, Jola, Elan S370, S430, Flying Scott or »Leilani« sailers. Day sailing boats are of
different kinds: Optimist sailers are used mostly for learning how to sail, Laser, Jola or Elan S370
are appropriate for sportive sailing for one person, and Elan 430, Flying Scott and »Leilani«
are appropriate for relaxation and recreation and can be called family day sailers.
Joy for the whole family
Family day sailing boats that Leilani Sailers offer enable the whole family to enjoy in smooth swinging
on the waves. Up to 5 persons can go on board, however there is only one sailor needed to manage the
boat. Spending the vacation or weekends on a lake, water-storage lake or sea brings relaxation, enables
exploring the shore, swimming in quiet bays or far away from the shore. The passengers onboard can lay
on the sun while sailing, or spend their time onboard fishing or reading a book. Leilani Sailers boats
have removable keel, therefore you can sail with them even to very shallow waters which can be otherwise
accessed only by paddle boats.
Day sailing is an excellent way of enjoying on the water and in the nature, affordable for people
with average incomes. The main advantage of day sailing boat is that you do not need to pay an
expensive marine for the whole year if you do not want to. You can take a day sailer with car with
you when you go on vacation and take it back when you go home. You put a day sailer into the water
and take it out by a car and a trailer. It is easy, much cheaper than launching with a lift and will
take only half an hour.
Marine is not the only place where you can leave a day sailer on the water. A buoy or a rope in a
smaller port will be just fine and much cheaper. To avoid inconveniences, a lock with a chain will
do in such places.
If you live near by a lake, water-storage lake or on a seaside, maybe you find nearby a cheaper place
for your day sailer where you can leave it the whole year. There it will be ready to use it whenever
you have few hours of time and feel like sailing.
A motor engine is not necessary equipment for a day sailer. A pair of oars is just enough as a secondary
drive, if the wind stops blowing. This way you can save a big expense, unavoidable with motor boat.
However, our day sailers enable putting the motor engine on as a secondary drive, so you can use them for
sailing when the wind is good, and as a motor boat when the wind stops or when you want to move quicker.
Also for less experienced sailors
A day sailing boat is very appropriate for less experienced saliors or beginners who want to learn
sailing. They can improve their sailing skills with a day sailer on lakes or water-storage lakes,
when wind is not too strong. However the experienced sailors will find their joy in sailing with
Leailani Sailers boats as well, going with it on a sea or sailing in stronger winds. If you want to
learn some basic facts about this beautiful sport, a good starting point are some
information for beginners that we offer on this web pages.
