Hobie Fleet 95

Welcome Current and Future Fleet Members!

Hobie Fleet 95 a member of Hobie Cat North America and  Division 4 is the place for Hobie Cat enthusiasts to get together and share in the excitement of Hobie Cat Sailing in Seattle, Wa.
A great group of people that enjoy having fun.

Pacific Northwest is hosting the Hobie 18, and Hobie 20 North American Championship

It will be held August 4-8th at Cascade Locks. We have set a wind limit of 20 knots for the event – since Cascade Locks / Columbia Gorge has a world renown reputation for their incredible wind…..I read somewhere, where it is the 4th windiest spot in the world.  We’ll be sailing a little earlier in the day before the thermals kick in.  If need be, we will sail in the morning, take a break and then sail in the evening.

For those of you who have never attended a North American Championship, we will start the event off with a Welcoming party on Monday August 4th – light meal / appetizers and drinks, Wednesday will be a midweek party with dinner- currently planned for Cioppino, and Friday will be the Awards banquet with full dinner at a local establishment. (No rubber chicken – I promise.)  Convenient and affordable camping and motels are in the area.

Here is the link for registration -.http://www.hobiediv4.org/

For charter boats, please contact Paul Evenden – pevenden@telus.net.

We’re encouraging everyone who is planning on attending, to register before July 1st to guarantee their “swag” for the event.

We’re also looking for some helping hands – a day here, a couple days there.  If you’re available, please let Paul Evenden or myself know what days you’d be available.

New sailors or wanabe sailors are always welcome. Feel free drop us a note on our Contact Us page.

Hobie sailors are a special breed; you’ll find Hobie Class Association (HCA) Division 4 members very friendly and eager to share their knowledge to help you enjoy your boat to its full potential.

Reading books, magazines, and watching videotapes is a start, but there is no substitute to actually participating in a regatta. You learn by copying what the guy ahead of you is doing, chatting on the beach or dinner, and learning from your own mistakes.
