The GPYC has three Hobie Waves, a Hobie Getaway and a Hobie 14 that can be used by GPYC members and their families for family sailing, youth sailing, and adult learn to sail. Any youth under the age of 18 must be supervised either by their parents, or by GPYC advisors at sanctioned youth sailing days.
The Hobies are in Slots 36, 37, 38 and 39.
The Hobies are easy to rig and sail, and are fast and exciting in fresh breeze. You are encouraged to use them while the weather is warm since you will get wet getting the boats on and off the water. The Hobie Waves are the entry level boats, and the Hobie 14 is one step up in performance.
When you first use the boats you will need to checked out by one of the Fleet Advisors below. You will be given instructions for set-up, and tear down of the GPYC boats. After your initial checkout we would like to be contacted by phone if you take them out, so we know what boats are available, and who is out sailing. Contact Marc first or others if possible.
