We had the first organizational meeting for the Chesapeake Hobie Island Group last week, and things are starting to come together. Glenn_SouthRiver & I didn't get anybody to join us on the water. Apparently nobody else felt it worth taking time off work to get there early enough to get in some sailing. Too bad as we got to watch the US Navy Blue Angels practicing. Still, the first meeting was a success. We got to meet some new friends, and we planned our first couple sailing meetups.
The first sailing meetup of the Chesapeake Hobie Island Group is now scheduled for Saturday, June 13 at Sandy Point State Park in Annapolis, MD.
The second sailing meetup is scheduled as part of the world wide Summer Sailstice Celebration, a two day annual event to promote sailing, on Saturday & Sunday, June 20 & 21. Check out this link for more information on Summer Sailstice.http://www.summersailstice.com
We'll be sailing out of the Backyard Boats shop in Annapolis, MD on Saturday. There's a floating dock to launch from that puts you right into Spa Creek & the Annapolis Harbor.
Come check out our meetup site (http://www.meetup.com/Hobie-Adventure-Island-Group/
) for more information on the Chesapeake Hobie Island Group. We're a low pressure group, so there's no guilt or obligation. We're just about enjoying our Hobie Adventure Islands, and getting them out on the water as often as we can. So far there's about a dozen folks registered, so it's growing fast. Should be a fun summer!
