Welcome to the website for Catalina C380, C387, C385 and C390 Yachts. Over the next few weeks we will be updating and modernizing our website. Our goal will be provide easy and fast access to information for all of the Catalina sailboats in the C3xx series.
As members of the Catalina C380 International Association, active members will have complete access to our website as well as access to the Group.IO member’s forum. It will be our goal to work hand in hand with the Group.IO site to provide online manuals, links to the manufacturers of the equipment our sailboats use and as many owner modifications, upgrades and all of the trials, tribulations and joy owners of the Catalina C3xx boats enjoy! We will rely on the Group.IO site to provide the instant give and take owners need when they are looking for advice or help on a project or issue with their boat.
So, pardon our mess as we begin the process of downloading and saving all of the manuals and articles our owner/members have provided over the years. We want to make sure all of this hard work will be here for years to come! You may see pages come and go while we work and you may see format changes as we try to find the very best final version. We can’t wait!
Our owners will find news, photos and technical information about their boats here, and those thinking about owning one will find ample reason to get on over to the dealer. We love our boats!
The Catalina 380 International Association has over 250 members from around the world. Our fleets provide sailing, social and technical support opportunities from coast to coast. Members are encouraged to start new fleets wherever three or more of our boats are close together. We hope you will find this to be a valuable resource, as well as an enjoyable browsing experience. Welcome to our world!
Members receive the quarterly magazine, Mainsheet, the subscription is included in your annual dues. You are encouraged to document your sailing experiences, particularly those in your own boats, and write them up for the magazine. It is a thrill to see your words and pictures in a magazine as attractive as this one.
The Technical Section of the magazine is pre-punched for a three-ring binder, and owners share their improvements here for permanent reference. All these articles are available on this site to C380 International Association members. Volunteer officers, including the captains of the local C380/CM381/C385/C387/C390 fleets, run the association. All members are urged to volunteer for association events and for national, as well as local offices. The more ideas we get from you, the better our association becomes.
We have a lively Discussion Group which is currently hosted by www.Groups.io. This is very easy to join and the discussions with other C380 Series Owners are a fantastic resource for tips on sailing, improvements, and maintenance.

*Note that C385s are new to the group so information specific to that model is currently somewhat limited. On the other hand, the information on other aspects of equipment can be highly useful.
