German term or phrase: Katsegler
Don 't know water sports at all. Is 'catamaraner' a decent term? Or is this 'windsurfer' in English?

"So gibt es auch für Surfer die unterschiedlichsten Gebiete, vom beliebten Surfrevier Wulfener Hals am Burger Binnensee, mit einer der führenden deutschen Surf- und Katamaranschulen, der Surfschule "Charchulla" - bekannt aus Funk und Fernsehen auf dem Campingplatz Strukkamphuk und in der Orther Bucht bis zum Brandungsrevier für Surfer, Segler und **Katsegler** vor."

Explanation:
Seems to exist in English too. I'm not a sailor either but I used to live on the West coast of Scotland with lots of friends who did sail and this rang a bell.
