Barb, This is Stew Barcalow. We have sailed at some of the same events a good while ago. Back when you had a Hobie 18??? Haven't been on this site for ages. Still sail a 2000 Hobie 16 and even got my US Sailing Instuctor certification. Also have given some "advanced catamaran" sailing courses at BCC a few years ago.[ A Rick White Want-to-be :-) ]
Be glad to help the Indiana sailor out if he is still interested. Also have many used 16 parts and sails if he needs anything. Can give me a call at 954-981-8445 or email me at Hobiedoc@aol.com.
