May 9th, 8:30am to 5:00pm
This year Sail Sand Point. Hobie Division 4 and Fleet 95 are teaming up to present — Hobie 101 and 102. What is Hobie 101? It is a one–day clinic to introduce people of all ages to multihulls and specifically Hobie Cats. Lunch, technical material, tips and tricks, tall tales and adventure stories about Hobies will be shared. Multihulls are much faster, more exciting and extremely affordable. The clinic covers how to properly rig the boats, proper weight distribution, points of sail, tacking and gybing, how to power–up as well as depower the boat and most importantly going through the safety aspects. The instructors have over 90 years of experience on multihulls and monohulls and can provide instructions on all aspects of helming and crewing Hobie Cats. All the instructors have competed at the local, National and World levels.
We’re all about having fun, safety and the social aspect of the Hobie way of life.
