In the winter we sail on 16 foot catamarans called Hobie Cats. These boats are easy to learn and have the potential to be very fast and since we are so close to the waterline, it is exhilarating!
These boats can fit up to three people and are so much fun! Catamarans are great boats for fit veterans looking for a more intense, yet therapeutic ride. When its cold out and you are on a fast moving boat all you can think about is what is happening at that moment and you have no time to think about yesterday or tomorrow because you’re more worried about your toes that you can’t feel (or if you still have them attached)!
Since the winter of 2013 we have had many great experiences frostbiting. Oakcliff Sailing Center has been generous in allowing us to use their beach to take out veterans on many intense wintery days! Winter sailing is good for teamwork and creating a special bond. Every time we come back from an outing we have received nothing but positive and heartwarming comments. No one has come out of this experience unhappy. It is a unique sport that gives you a good adrenaline rush. It is an unforgettable experience and somehow we always come out with a funny story to tell!
