Cat44 Racing Schedule on Fort Lauderdale beach

Every Sunday is race day at Cat 44! We are blessed with amazing beach and weather conditions.

Casual Hobie Cat Racing every Sunday

No matter what the weather might look like out West, the weather on the beach is good for racing 365 days a year. There will always be a group of Hobie 16 sailors ready to do an impromptu race, so please come and join us. 

On the lighter days, some of the races might be done single handed, but when the wind picks up we always try to sail with crew. We are always looking for new blood in our great club, so please feel free to come down to the beach on Sundays and offer your services as crew.

For those of you that want to get into racing, the Cat44 approach to racing is a great way to start. We don't take it too seriously, yet we have one of the fastest Hobie 16 fleets in the country, with some past national champions in our ranks
