Winter sailing in Queensland on a Hobie Tandem Island
Despite temperatures being a few degrees below average last weekend I got out on the Bay to enjoy a sail with my son. I had to test a 2nd hand Tandem Island that we have for sale. It will be going to a customer in the NT so I wanted to check it out for myself to make sure I was happy with it.
Forecast was for cold and windy conditions but Winter sailing in Queensland on a Hobie Tandem Island can still be a pleasure with the correct clothing. Very often just a good Splash top is enough to keep the wind chill off. I wear mine over a warm shirt and my PFD and on Sunday that was enough !
At Sunstate Hobie we have the Hobie and Ronstan Splash tops and have access to the full range of Gill sailing gear. We also have Kokatat gear in stock at less 20% so if you want to stay out on the water this winter come in and we’ll get you set !!
