I windsurf / board sail. I'd like to learn to sail Hobie Cats. Can someone point me in the right direction? I live in St.Augustine Florida. If anyone ever need a second... I'd love to learn.

Thanks,
Robert

Do a Google search for
hobie fleet St.Augustine Florida

looks like fleet 153 is in Gainesville. I would bet fairly large amounts of money that somebody in that fleet would be happy to teach a new sailor some old tricks.

Have fun,

Sam

I'm having a hard time pulling up the Fleet 153 home page in google..... do you have a link to it?

Thanks in advance.

I don't think they have a web site. The organized activity in northern Florida was never very strong and has been dormant for the last few years.

I've pinged someone I know in the Gainesville / Alachua area to see if there's anything going on. I'll let you know what I find out.
