"I have a 14 year old daughter and her 12 year old sister want to race in our club races next year."
On a 16!
Well, more powe to them!
History: Hobie Alter designed the boat with his "ideal" California couple in mind. That would be a "beach boy" of about 160 to 180 lbs and his girlfriend of about 110 to 130 lbs. Thus the righting weight and all. I hope youir girls can hold it together in a good breeze.
Don't forget- reefing the main IS an option (but I have never seen anyone but me do it- and win races to boot! )
Anyway, more power to them as I said.
Dang, I wish I could even get my kid out with me much less be interested in sailing on her own
You up for a "kid trade"?
Happy New Year-
