Fleet 204 Was there.  Did we have a chance to meet you?  Did you have a chance to meet us?

The CNY Bot show was a great opportunity for people to see, touch, and talk about Hobie sailing. This was the first time the show was held in the Exposition Center and the Dairy Building.  This has traditionally been the “unofficial start”  to the sailing season.  Fleet 204 had members present to greet people and introduce them to the Fleet.  Our website is the place to be if you are looking for information about sailing.  Look for more information about our Come Sail With Us Day, June 22, 2019.  Also look for announcements about the start of our Newbie Tuesday offerings.

For information about either Come Sail With Us or Newbie Tuesday, you may contact Bob Longo.

Hobie Cat sailing is a great sport and fun activity for you and your whole family.  Sailing is very     affordable and easier to learn than it looks. Our Come Sail With Us Day will give you the        opportunity to take one for a “test drive” with an experienced skipper.  If you haven’t sailed      before no problem, its your chance to try one of these great sailboats or other Hobie kayaks or paddle boards!  You’re welcome to bring a friend or two, let us know by RSVP by June 19th.

We’ll start at 11am with a brief overview of Hobie Cat sail boating and other crafts co-hosted by Boat Works-LTD.  We’ll then team you up with an experienced Hobie skipper who will give you further basic instructions and answer questions. Please be our guest for a picnic lunch, hot dogs and hamburgers at noon.  After lunch we’ll suit you up with a PFD and set out from shore as crew with your qualified skipper for a great ride on beautiful Oneida Lake. You’ll also get to try out the other Hobie water crafts, kayaks and paddle boards displayed at the CNY Boat Show.

To participate, bring water shoes and a PFD (Life Vest if you own one), we’ll have extras in case you don’t. We have changing rooms to get into your bathing suits, bring a towel to dry off with after.  Minors/children ages 12-17 will be allowed to participate with written parental permission and a parent on site.  Should there be rain, thunder or too much/strong wind predicted we’ll notify you 24 hours in advance by email and or phone, and postpone to our rain date the next day, Sunday June 23rd. Everyone participating will be required to sign a safety release form.  You must RSVP to reserve a spot to participate, once we hear from you we’ll confirm and provide all final details. If you can’t make it at 11am, we’ll be there until 4pm. There is no cost to             participate.  Contact us if you have questions.  Event participation is weather/wind dependent.
