The Paper Tiger Catamaran is an exciting single-handed catamaran that provides competitive one-design racing for beginners through to champions. The class rules ensure tight control over the major dimensions of the boat which guarantees exceptional racing, yet they provide the freedom to experiment with gear and equipment for the boat.
Paper Tiger Catamarans are sailed extensively throughout Australia and New Zealand as well as having fleets in South Africa and some in the USA, Canada, Japan and parts of Asia.
