Paddlers Enjoying the Tandem Island Adventure

We’re excited to announce that with help from our friends, the Island Adventurers, we at ACK will be organizing the Hobie Gulf Coast Island Club.  This will be an opportunity to meet other Hobie Mirage Adventure Island and Hobie Mirage Tandem Island owners and share passions for the waterways and oceans of our world. It will assist in the introduction of Island owners to one another where dreams of sailing to places unknown and countless adventures can become a reality. Because we will be working with Efren and Daniel of the Hobie Island Adventurers, the club will also have a focus on kayak fishing, as the two of them are very experienced coastal anglers.

For those that are interested in joining or finding out more about the club, we encourage you to visit the Island Adventurers Website and forum.

The inaugural event of the club, “Sail N Tails” will be taking place Monday May 27th between 9 AM to 4 PM at 1304 Monument Dr., Freeport, TX. Here is the itinerary for the day:

9:00-10:00 am: Meet and greet and set up your Island at the boat ramp next to the Coast Guard Station on Thunder Dr. and Militia Dr.

10:00 – 10:30 am:  Safety briefing and final call/decision on sailing route to rig.

10:30 am:  Launching of the islands for sailing and fishing.

12pm:  Lunch at rig or at the sailors discretion.

2:30-3:00pm:  Return to launch point.
