Welcome to Newbie Tuesdays!


If you would like to try out a Hobie Cat sailboat on Oneida Lake this summer, join us on
Newbie Tuesdays! We’ll give you an introduction as crew to sailing and how much fun it is!

Hobie Cat Fleet 204 has created a night just for people that are new or don’t have much
experience sailing. Join us on Newbie Tuesdays for sailing fun!

Here are the basic details:

Who: Anyone wanting to try out Hobie Cat Sailing with an experienced Fleet 204 Skipper. Or if you have a used Hobie sailboat you need help rigging and checking over, we’ll help.

When: Every Tuesday night starting Tuesday June 16 through the last Tuesday in August, the 25th

We start at 6pm, but you can arrive after 5pm, skippers will get out of work and get there asap. All weather
permitting, show up nonetheless and we’ll watch the weather, you never know.

Where:  Therre’s Marina, 6695 Lake Shore Rd., Cicero, NY, across from the Lakeshore Road Baptist Church. Please park behind the church, left side, towards the back.

How:  To RSVP your participation, please place a response by noon or sooner every Tuesday on our Fleet website, Forum Page. We’ll put up a posting each week. It helps if you tell us you want to participate to make sure we have enough skippers and boats available for everyone.

Bring your water gear, beach/water shoes, PFD, bathing suit, towel, windbreaker, etc. Early in the season it
might be a bit cooler, If it is windy, you’ll get splashed. You are welcome to bring a friend(s). Let us know
how many. Be ready by 6pm if possible to get on the water. You can park in the Church’s lot on the left
side towards the back. Cross the road carefully and come down our driveway.
