Want to improve your catamaran sailing? Or experience the fun of a light, fast accelerating cat for the 1st time? Not afraid to get wet? Want to go out on a wire? See if you can fly a hull?
Join us Friday afternoon at 2.30 or 3 pm from June to September when we sail Hobie Getaways at Les Bassetes Bay, Benissa (near Calpe). The cats are rigged and ready to go. Experienced sailors act as skippers and take 2 or 3 crew out for 2 hours of fun. We have a drink afterwards at the Coral Beach terrace with a view of the Peñón de Ifach.
Hobie Cats provide a whole different experience!
The CBYA rents from Las Antipodas Watersports at Les Bassetes. They provide:
The Hobie Getaway 17 is a fast, stable and safe catamaran. It is ideal for the Mediterranean soft thermal breezes; at the softest breath of wind the Getaway flies! The boat is officially approved for 6 people but sails as if only 3 were on board! With only 2 or 3 people it is superfast!
The ‘Getaway’s’ little brother is the Hobie Wave, an exciting, great fun 13 foot Ideal for 2/3 people.
This is wet sailing so a change of clothes would be wise! Also sun glasses, sun cream, hat, sailing gloves, etc.
Buoyancy jackets are available on loan, but better to bring your own if you have one.
The CBYA Committee strongly recommends that, as from 1st January 2021, all sailing members should purchase their own insurance which will cover them for any CBYA sailing activities. This includes dinghy and Hobie Cat sailors, as well as those that join the monthly CBYA day charters and annual CBYA charter holiday trips.
