A Hobie day out at Jervis Bay sounds great. Two questions:
Do we now have a separate forum for Australia and do you think that's a good idea?
If you are trying to get lots of Cats and SUP's (? standup paddleboards) on the water, don't you think the fleet might get a bit errrr scattered?
We have a number of requests from customers in Australia to have such a forum. We are responding to the request.
It also gives us the opportunity to answer local question about our products if required and for those to share in Australia.
The event is really a AI / TI social that will run from one of two places subject to wind / sea conditions.
The day out will give a good number of Hobie AI / TI users a chance to see and try other Hobie products out.
The day out is not a race it is a social function. We have a group of AI / TI’s that will be fishing and this is headed up by Josh Holmes from Maclean Outdoors.
For those AI / TI customers that have never been on a Hobie 16, a Hobie Wave or a Hobie Bravo this will give everyone an opportunity to have a go if they wish.
We will have former Hobie 16 World Champion Mick Butler on hand to take people for a sail if you keen to hop on a Hobie 16!
We are amazed at the number of customer that own one of our products and ask what other products are like to sail, paddle or fish from.
