Catamaran Sailing at Hobie Beach, Oxnard, CA, needs your help.

Added by damonAdmin on Aug 04, 2003 - 12:06 AM
A local group of dedicated catamaran sailors in California are attempting to "Fight City Hall". They want to reverse years of declining public beach access in California for sailing beach catamarans from the beach as they were designed. Located only about 100 miles from the birthplace of the Hobie Cat Company, catamaran sailing in the Channel Islands Harbor area was once so common that "Hobie Beach" is the official name of the public beach in question.

You would think that sailing catamarans from a beach named "Hobie Beach" would not be a problem, but these sailors need your help. Read about the efforts of the CICDA (Channel Islands Catamaran and Dinghy Association) to regain sanctioned beach access at Hobie Beach.

Footnote: Thanks to John and the CICDA for their efforts at bringing more catamaran sailing opportunities to California.

There are a few places to launch a catmaran aside from the local boat ramps. Here are the one's I've used fairly often...

Looking for a place to go sailing this year- near Lancaster/Harrisburg, PA. Tried Havre de Grace, MD. Didn't like the rockey shore, Susquehana Flats.. The lake I sailed in is down 14' due to the drought. Looking for a place, northern Chesepeake Bay?...
