Fellow Hobie, Malbec, Daysailor, trailer-able Sportboat/Keelboata, Inland NW sailors (that was a mouth full) on January 8 at 6:pm at the Silver Lake Mall FunToSAIL store in Coeur d'Alene Idaho we are having our first sailing activity of the year. We will be watching some SailGP racing and enjoying each others company. Plus talking a bit about the new year activities, etc.
Click on the Comment word link at the end of this post to let us know if you will be attending. I Miles Moore will be there!
Here is a great video of Hobie Island sailors getting together. We will have similar activities in 2022 that will also include sailors aboard many different types of sailboats.

On the 31st there will be trick-or-treating for kids. Hosted by the Candlelight Christian Church. FunToSAIL will be there handing out treats, join us to help.
Great fun! Hope to see you all there!
Today is Columbus Day and I also include on this day what I call Discovery Day as their were the Vikings and others who also landed in North American (Columbus actually landed in Cuba and the Bahamas). Some indigenous people who are my ancestors crossed the land bridge into North America but who knows maybe some actually traveled on boats of some sort. There are also some stories of religious groups landing in North, Central, and South America. So there are a lot of groups that took part in discovering North America, and all of the Americas.
My thought is to celebrate the brave skippers, crew, and passengers that were willing to go out on the sea of unknown to land on lands that they had no idea was there but with great faith and spirit of adventure were willing to do what others of their day would not do. Some even thought these sailors would sail off the edge of the earth.
Columbus in particular was the sailor who started the process that one day would end up creating the most free and prosper nation on earth, the United States of America.
So let us celebrate the spirit of Columbus and all brave sailors who did what seemed impossible.
At FunToSAIL we will start producing adventure sailors series to discuss various ancient voyages that likely happened all over the world and related topics. Stay tuned!
Here is a great video about the amazing technology of what appears to be a very simple Viking sailing ship, but they were anything but simple.

We received our shipment of new and improved 2022 Hobie Getaways in early August. Was a late delivery due to the work Hobie did to update the boat. We were the first dealer on the West Coats and Mountain States to receive them.
The boats were redesigned to stiffen them up a little, with thicker skeg and edge along the bottom of the hull. Bows are no longer wave piercing design but more traditional shape. Wing seats are lighter and more comfortable. So the hulls and wing seats are new.
Our customers love the new boat! The boat sails beautifully.
Order your Getaway for 2022 delivery now as there is a limited supply of Getaways.
Just a few of our Happy customers!
