Hobie Cats are fast

Last week I bought a used Hobie 16. Yesterday I was able to take it out for the first time. I always heard they were fun, but I had no idea just how fun it would be.

My friend kentos and I got one hull out of the water. The only shame was that we weren't ready for it so it started coming out too far. As the other hull started dipping below the water I had to quickly let out the main sheet to keep us from tipping. It was awesome.

I think I'll be sailing as much as possible until the end of the season. As long as I can find a friend to handle the jib I'll be in good shape.
