Hobie Cats

This video is not currently available. We apologize for any inconvenience.

The Hobie Cat, a type of catarmaran, gives sailing devotees the flexibility of launching directly from the shore and flying across the water. Field Guide travels to Hobie Cat regattas on Yale Lake near Cougar, Washington and on the Columbia River to see what makes this kind of sailing so addictive for Hobie Cat enthusiasts.

First Broadcast: 1998
