Small and wiry

Go do it, my 105 lb 14 year old can. The first time scared him, but that didn't last when he found he could jump on the windward or if into the wind, either hull and pull on the shrouds with the...

Hobie Getaway

The newer Hobie models fixed many of these issues. Look for the Getaway with the float at the rotating masthead. You cannot turtle these as they come right back to their sides and then for a person...
