The resurgence of interest in Hobies on the lake was clearly evident during the Fleet 58 Regatta and Reunion on Sunday, July 6th. Twenty-five Hobies competed in the event. The 2013 Boat Count revealed 24 Hobies; and in the 2014 count on July 4th, the number had jumped to 38. No doubt the Fleet 58 event led to the increased number and may provide the impetus for participation in the Yacht Club regatta this fall.
