Hello everyone! My name is Miles Moore and I live in the Coeur d'Alene Idaho/Spokane WA. area. We just finished our winter Hobie Island Frozen Buns Regatta. It was a big hit.
Related to sailing or pedaling we have developed 2 divisions at our regatta. Division 1 is sail power only and division 2 is pedal and sail power. If you are in a race and then decide to pedal then you automatically end up in division 2 for the rest of the regatta. We find this works best because there are some that just want to sail and some that are old or have a disAbility that just can't compete with the fit young Island skippers. Also in the starting sequence you can pedal until the 1 minute gun before the start if you are in the sail only division.

and click on the Hobie Club link and you will see some beutiful pictures of the event.
In Aug. up here we are having a big N. American Hobie Island Challange in a remote location on Swan Lake. I will post info about this event on this forum soon.
I just heard about the Island Nationals and wish I could attend but unfortunately its planned during the boat show season here in the Pacific NW.
