Commodore's Welcome Message:
Hobie Fleet 61 has a long and rich history within the Rocky Mountain region dating back to the early 70s. It is highlighted with tales of summers past and Regattas hosting 200 plus competitors in a single design event held at such prestigious venues as Lake Dillon. However today we find ourselves in the same boat as most sailing organizations, smaller in membership numbers yet rich in experience and overflowing with enthusiasm to share the “Hobie Way of Life.”
Hobie Fleet 61 is part of the Division 5 family that makes up the 16 divisions of the HCA or Hobie Class Association of North America. Division 5 currently has 5 active fleets hosting a total of 6 nationally ranked points Regattas. Hobie Fleet 61 has a number of its members in the top 10 ranking for most classes of Hobie Cats, including the # 1 ranked 18’ sailor for the last five+ years.
Hobie Fleet 61 also takes great pride in our partnership with Craig Hospital in hosting a long standing tradition of Hobie Craig day. This is a one day event held at Cherry Creek Reservoir where Hobie sailors launch their boats with one purpose in mind and that is to take a non-ambulatory Craig patient sailing. This is an event that sends everyone, sailor, patient, family member, hospital employee, or volunteer home with an adjusted outlook on life.
We typically draw 25 to 35 boats to any one event within our division and sail at some of the best venues along the Front Range from Lake McConaughy, NE; Lake Alcova, WY; Boyd Lake, CO; and Union Reservoir, Longmont. CO.
Good Sailing to you!
