Sail

Obviously, the main activity on bishara is surfing… But the area is also a very good spot for sailing in small boats, as the following pictures show:

So, what does it take to sail here?

  • a small boat, such as the tako, the fizz, or the beach cat, or a RS:X or RSiX Windsurfer. The small trudeau boats, such as the sojourner or the sea sharp, work quite well, too.
  • (optional) Membership in the SL Sailing Association, so that you can use the start line and windsetter on Mandhari Island.

Sometime in the near future there will be official races on Bishara; until then, come and try the mandhari short hotlaps course, it starts at the start line at the mouth of the mandhari island laguna, and consists of a simple lap clockwise around the island… current best time in a fizz is 1:44 minutes…
