Great Hobie video

Hobie Cat Co. in conjunction with the Hobie Class Assn. of North America have produced one awesome video! Gary Jobson (of America’s Cup fame and a whole lot more) visited last year’s Hobie 16 NACs and shot a bunch of footage. Very professionally done. Plus some great footage of good friends!!

Passing of a dear friend in our Hobie family

It is with heavy hearts, and great sadness, we report the loss of a super sailor, husband, son, and friend to all of us. Todd Christensen passed away November 20th, at his parents home while recovering from major surgery. Starting at the age of 13, Todd was a big part of the Hobie Cat family, over time joining the International F18 Class Catamarans, and keel boat fleets as a member of the Shrek team. Todd could do it all, from foredeck to skipper, on a large monohull, a fast F18 or master of the Hobie 16.todd at quinault

As an engineer and master craftsman, Todd helped our sailing community immeasurably. From storing and transporting race gear, to modifying trailers for hauling as many boats as possible to events. In his spare time, he volunteered to man chase boats, help with youth programs, organize regattas, and hold various officer positions in our Division and Local Fleets.todd

You are welcome to join us in a celebration of his life on Saturday, December 13th at 2 pm at
