Hobie Catamarans for 2 – 3 hours
Crazy & fast days

The CBYA organises........

« Hobie Cat» days each year at Les Bassetes, near Calpe. This is a fun social and sailing event when we hire several Hobie Catamarans for 2 – 3 hours, and the more experienced sailors act as skippers to take the others out for an exciting sail. During the summer months of July & August, we sail every Tuesday afternoon. Check the reporting and sailing times by clicking HERE
