HOBIE ISLAND SAILING AND HOW TO GUIDES

The following articles and videos have been put together by Sunstate Hobie in conjunction with the South East Queensland Hobie Island Club to show you the basics of sailing your Hobie Island. These are some of the easiest boats to sail and a great introduction to the sport of sailing. The local Island club is always available to give you some private lessons if you need them.

  • The most important point to remember with any sailing boat is to reduce the sail area as the wind gets stronger. With the Islands it is vey simple to pull the sail furling line and roll the sail up.
