Hobie is one of the original creators of the modern sailing lifestyle. It has continued to expand and innovate with rotomolded sailboats, the Hobie Island, sailing kayaks and numerous other toys for enjoying life on the water. As a creator and supporter of the sailing lifestyle Hobie has also been a long-time supporter of Summer Sailstice and with a good number of Summer Sailstice participants winning a Hobie kayak along with their sailing celebrations. As always, enjoy Summer Sailstice but also 'Have a Hobie Day'!
A public event was not planned in our area, so I took the opportunity to put my Snipe, Curly Mermaid, in Cinco Bayou---part of the backwater system of the Choctawhatchee Bay. My friend, Joel D., and I, put in at the Cinco Bayou ramp and sailed on the bayou for a couple of hours!
