Has anybody been sailing in Nabeul last year? If so, what was the state of
maintenance of the catamarans?

I ask this because at Djerba la Douce, in november 2003, the state of the
cats was not what it should be, certainly not when compared to a village
like Kamarina. I will be very grateful for a clear answer, as I am considering
Nabeul for september this year.

Ciao!

Dear Robbedoes
The structural condition of every boat depends from the ability and capacity of chief of sailing team, however it is easier find single hull boats in good conditions than katamarans in which all the stern's structures are very weak and now ClubMed has only a little number of good sailor G.Os, and the worse news is that the mitic Miko Belan now is out of C.M. cause disagreement with Abdel Osmani last year in Caprera.

Thank you, Maurizio, for NOT answering my question, which actually was
a very plain and simple one, at least for anybody who has visited Nabeul
last year; so, why did you respond at all, huh ?

Perhaps somebody else can give a meaningful answer here? I would really
appreciate it !

The only one who can answer to your questions is the last one chief of sailing team, because he had to repair all defects or ruptures of katamarans occured in summer 2004 after closure and the structure of Kata is so fragile that in a day you can damage strongly every boats and more Miko was the G.O. who had to check the welldone riparation in the whole mediterranean villages

No, any experienced GM can evaluate the situation, particularly, the
state of the rigging: ropes, clamps, blocks, and what have you.

An experienced G.M. doen't means, needly, expert sailor, sailing manager or skipper who is able to see beyond present and not only able to sail for 30 minutes on a Kata without know any about managing of ClubMed sailing team.

Don't you patronize me Maurizio : I probably was already sailing while you weren't
even born! With "any experienced GM" I meant, of course, "any GM who is an experien-
ced sailor"; this should be clear from the context of my question. (For your information:
there are plenty of GMs who are experienced sailors, I meet them all the time.) And, one
doesn't have to know about "managing a Club Med sailing team" to be able to judge the
state of a sailing boat. What is your problem, anyway???? Why are you interfering here
while, apparently, you have not recently visited CM Nabeul? Your remarks are neither
constructive nor helpful: Che guaio!!

I went in Nabeul in September 2004, many catamarans were broken and pieces for repare catamarans are very expensive so they prefer not repare them until the end of the season.

Sorry for my english...

I hope that I answer to your question

Merci bien Lucie!

Don't apologize for your English: it is good enough, certainly better
than my French.

And yes, your answer certainly helps. I have been in Kamarina two
times in september, and there I have never seen (big) problems
with the catamarans. So, your answer surprises me a little but that,
of course, is not your fault! Do you remember the name of the
"responsable de voile" when you were there?

Like Kamarina, Nabeul is a family village but, I guess that, like
Kamarina, Nabeul will be relatively quiet by the end of september.
Am I right? I am considering Nabeul because I don't want to go
to Kamarina all the time; but I do like Kamarina very much!

Merci bien encore, à la prochaine! (Répondez en français, si c'est
plus facile pour toi .)

I don't remember the name of the chief of sailing sorry.

En ce qui concerne l'état des catamarans, en septembre, certains catamarans ont été cassé à cause des fortes rafales de vent et de l'inexperience de certains GM face à ses vents.

The frequentation of sailing is very important. If I didn't go at "la case de voile" at 9 am or/and at 2 pm I can't sail. Many people came at 8.30 or 1.30 to book a catamaran and it was the same for lessons.
If you have others questions tell me

Merci bien, Lucie, pour ton aide!

Est ce que tu veux dire qu'il y a si beaucoup de monde pour la voile à Nabeul,
qu'on ne peut sortir qu'une demi-heure par demi-journée? Et ça seulement
quand on s'inscrit très tôt le matin/l'après-midi? Pour moi, ça sera raison de
ne pas aller à Nabeul du tout, mais aller, de nouveau, à Kamarina.

Quelles semaines de septembre tu étais là? Moi, cette année je ne peux pas
partir plus tôt que 24 septembre.

Ciao,
Rob.

J'y étais la semaine du 10 au 17 septembre, et c'est vrai qu'il y avait beaucoup de monde à la voile, et ce n'est pas rare que certains GM repartaient à 9h sans pouvoir faire de voile dans la matinée.
Plus tard dans le mois ceux sont peut être plus des personnes agées donc qui ne font peut être pas de voile donc moins de monde...

bye
Lucie

Merci Lucie,

Tu es trop gentille avec ton compliment sur mon français. C'est du travail dur, avec
beaucoup d'usage des dictionnaires, mais c'est bonne exercice ! Ça m'étonne:
j'écris le français plus facilement que l'allemand, quoique l'allemand ressemble au
néerlandais bien plus que le français ! Mais, écrire l'allemand correctement est
très difficile aussi!

Alors, merci aussi pour tes renseignements sur Nabeul. J'étais à Kamarina quattre
fois, dont deux fois fin de septembre. Faire la voile n'étais jamais une problème:
on pouvait sortir si souvent et si longuement qu'on voulait. L'âge des GM était très
varié; comme Nabeul, Kamarina est un (très grand) village famille, mais évidem-
ment en septembre il n'y a que des enfants de moins de 6 ans.

Kamarina, here I come (again) !!!

Lucie, à la prochaine,
Rob.

Hello Robbedoes,

Did you finally went to Nabeul this year ? Since I also think about that CM village, I am interested to know whether it is really so difficult to sail at least 2 or 3 x /day, because it is the only sport I really enjoy.

Thanks for your answer.

Jacqueline

Hi Robbedoes!

I was in Nabeul for 2 weeks in October as Mini Club GO and took "my" kids on a cata-ride once. From what I could see (this was only my 5th time on a cata, so I am far from being experienced) the material was OK. I felt comfortable taking the kids out (together with the sailing GO ofcourse, otherwise we probably would've ended up in kamarina...sicily isn't that far...) so it wasn't in too bad a state.

I came back from Nabeul this sunday (16/9). The sailing team, supervizes by Vincent, is certainly one of the best I ever met in the Club. All boats were in a perfect state for sailing, although it is nearly the end on the season; the GOs were doing the best to let us sail as much as possible (waiting time between 2 boats was between 10' and 30'), so it was possible to go out 8 times/day and even more. The armadas took place in the late afternoon (after 17h), to allow the GMs to sail freely in the afternoon.
Of course, this all was thanks to Vincent and his GOs (François, Sunil, Cedric, Wassim, Babacar, Merhez), and is not proper to the village...
