Hello!
Although I have sailed for many years, it was mainly on 420s and 470s. I just bought a h
Hobie 16 and would appreciate tips! Any one on Cape Cod sailing Hobies?

I've not lived there for 20+ years, but I remember being a kid and talking a guy into taking me out on his H16 out of West Falmouth Harbor. Thing was absolutely screaming. We made it out and around Cleveland Ledge Light and back in under 25 minutes. Also, if you go to youtube and look for H16 porn, there are a bunch of vids from guys on Nantucket. I don't think Hobies are as numerous on the Cape as, say, 420s, Optimists and Sunfish, but they're around. Hopefully someone with some more recent knowledge will pipe up.

Have fun!

There's a Hobie rental place on Ridgevale Beach near Chatham. I would check with the owner and see if he can point you in the right direction.

Contact Fleet 448. It's website is http://www.fleet448.org/, although it seems a bit more active on Facebook.

Best of luck,
