Multihull sailing has been around for a while but has gotten some new attention with the foiling cats of America’s Cup and GP Racing among others. Closer to home, cats are among the best boats for handling light to crazy breezes. We go fast when it’s 5 or 25mph on the water: the only limit is your skill and comfort level. We can race bigger boats on Lake Pleasant or participate in the Tempe Town Lake regattas with Hobie Waves or H14s.
This year we’re working on getting back to what made beach cat fleets strong, strong social ties along with great racing and events. We’ll be out at Lake Pleasant for the race series with campouts at Pleasant Harbor Saturday night. Come set up/learn about your boat or help someone with theirs on Saturday and be fresh and ready to race on Sunday morning! You can learn to sail on a Wave or Hobie 16 and/or scream along on one of the spinnaker boats. We sail locally at Pleasant or Roosevelt and travel out to visit other events hosted at Rocky Point or San Diego.
