Flying Hobie 14

These pictures remind me of when I was young in the late 1970s and early 80’s when I sailed my Hobie 14 through the surf in Grays Harbor Washington State USA.

The following pics are of Mick Butler of NSW Australia sailing his Hobie 14 through 20 foot/6 meter breaking surf. In July of 2020 there was a crazy southerly storm that hit this coast with 45-60 knot winds that drove waves into Jervi Bay. Some would see such a storm with its horizontal rain as a reason to stay ashore but not Mick, he saw it as an opportunity to flyh is Hobie 14, quite literally flying off the tops of the waves.

Fall Hobie Cat Sailing

Hello fellow sailors, sailing on Lake Coeur d'Alene and throughout the Inland NW is not over as seen in these pictures of a Hobie 17 sailed by a Harrison Idaho family on 11-28-2020. The previous week they sailed their Hobie Getaway on Lake CdA. Actually one never has to stop sailing. If a small lake near you is frozen over just head to one of the big lakes. Of course you will have all the need safety equipment to ensure your survival. Never sail alone!

Make a comment below about the sailing you are doing within Inland NW or elsewhere. Emails us about your sailing adventures and we will post them here at funtosail.com

Hobie Wave in a pickup bed

This is how well a Wave fits in the back of a 6 foot/1.8 meter bed of a pick up truck. In this picture the boat sticks out about 6. The rule is an item can not stick out more than 4 feet from your rear bumper (this rule varies from state to state). Must also have a safety flag. There are what we call T Hitch Extenders that can give support if an item is sticking way out of the back of your vehicle. I recommend using one when boats stick out like this as seen in this picture. One can also add taillights underneath to the horizontal bar, again something I recommend. One can buy these lights from Harbor Freight and other businesses.
