Sail
well

The Tiwal 3 sailing dinghy is first and foremost a real boat. It reacts like a larger boat, for maximum pleasure. It sails well upwind thanks to its large centerboard and V-shaped hull. It is also a real delight downwind with its wide open transom. Hiking out on the wings, experienced skippers will enjoy great sensations near the surface of the water and will appreciate the power of the square mainsail and carbon mast. Because the Tiwal 3 is light (110 lbs), it can even plane! The Tiwal 3 is very easy to maneuver. When sailing, there are only two controls: direction and speed. It will surprise you with its astonishing ease of handling: push the tiller and it tacks within its own length. It is very reactive, even in light winds! When the windspeed increases, told on tight to the tiller, the Tiwal 3 will surf on the waves.

Sail in all weathers

The Tiwal 3 will bowl you over! When the wind rises, so does the fun. The Tiwal can adapt its sail surface.

The 75 ft² sail is powerful, suitable for one or two adults sailing in light to moderate winds. The 56 ft² sail is more versatile. It works for adults in a strong breeze, and for children in more reasonable weather conditions.

Finally, the reefing 75/56 ft² sail is good in all weather conditions. Its surface adapts to the windspeed. Simply stop on a beach to change to an optimal sail surface and fully enjoy the performance of your Tiwal 3, no matter who the crew is.

Sail comfortably and safely

The Tiwal 3 is designed to enable sailors to enjoy maximum sensations on the boat. This includes the comfort of the skipper and crew. The inflatable surface of the hull is padded with foam for a very comfortable sailing experience. And it is also a very reassuring boat.. Sailors can lean back on the ergonomic winds or sit on them when the wind increases, to hike out. For complete comfort, wind cushions are available. The Tiwal 3 first and foremost feels very safe. Sailing is reassuring for crew as there is no boom or shrouds. It is also more stable than most classic dinghy. If you capsize, righting it is child’s play. Its open cockpit is self bailing, making it much easier to right. You only need to weigh 110 lbs to right the Tiwal 3.

Michel Desjoyeaux’s escapade

“A small fun boat, easily inflatable.”

Tiwal spent some time in the expert hands of skipper Michel Desjoyeaux. It only took a few minutes for Michel to assemble Tiwal on the beach and get to grips with it, for some fun in the waves of Port-la- Forêt. The French skipper had great fun sailing and was convinced by how easy it was: “It’s lightweight and responds easily, everything you need is there!”
