What is a “Hobie” you ask? According to wikipedia, it is a small sailing catamaran manufactured by the Hobie Cat company which began by creating surf boards during the 1950s. Today, they make both and also kayaks.
The races will take place in the Gulf of Mexico and begin along Okaloosa Island in Fort Walton Beach. For more information, call 850.243.7102.
