Hi all, I am considering the Getaway for use near home in a lake where sailing is popular, but with day sailers (dinghy style sailboats) and larger cruising type sailboats. I grew up near the beach, and always wanted a Hobie. We still vacation there, so this boat would hopefully work well for us in both locations. Do any of you use your Getaway for lake sailing? Forgive me if its a stupid question, I'm new at this... Thanks in advance!
My Getaway has been only on lakes. It is a great boat for yourself and a few friends. If you have little to no experience with cats, the Getaway is the way to go. Easy to learn on and hard to outgrow. They are also as tough as boats go, so get out there with one and start sailing! Oh, and don't be afraid to flip it over a few times, it is fun, you get wet, and is easy to rite (with a friend).
