The answer to the trailer-sailor's lament: "I love sailing, but I hate setting up..."
The Picnic Cat is from the drawing board of Clark Mills, designer of our Sun Cat, 23/IV, and former Com-Pac 16, and well known also as the designer of the Optimist Pram and the Windmill One Design. Unlike her sister Com-Pacs the Picnic Cat has a centreboard rather than a keel. With her centerboard up, the Picnic Cat is beachable.
Her broad hull form and the low center-of-effort of her gaff-rigged sail make her very stable. And her huge self-bailing cockpit and ample stowage offer unsurpassed comfort in a small, easily handled package.
She's built of solid, hand-laid glass, with aluminum spars and stainless centerboard. In addition, the exclusive Mastendr mast raising system revolutionizes the trailer-boating experience
