West Coast Sailing recently hosted the first ever Hobie Island Club event! Several sailors from the Portland area joined us on the Willamette River for a spin around Ross Island. There is nothing better than blasting around in a fresh breeze on a warm day under sunny skies, and that’s just what we got! It was exciting for us to meet Island owners who are passionate about their boats and spending time on the water.
Hobie Cat started the idea of the Island Club a few years back as a way for Adventure Island and Tandem Island owners to meet up and sail together. Our local club, the Great Oregon Hobie Island Club, is just one of many around the world! Send an email to Phil at firstname.lastname@example.org to get involved!.

The 2000, traditionally known in North America as the Laser 2000, is a high performance, double handed dinghy. Quality construction, a modern sail plan with asymmetric spinnaker, ease of handling and great sailing performance make this boat popular for both racing and training. LDC Sailing (most well known as the builder of RS Racing boats) was recently appointed the new builder for the 2000 Class. They have tooled up to build class approved 2000′s with some modern enhancements.
As part of the RS Racing collection, West Coast Sailing is proud to offer the 2000 in North America. This classic one design boat is dialed in for high performance sailing and a great choice for the active sailor, but also works well for training of new sailors. Look for more details on the 2000 in the coming weeks.

The main even this month was the Strictly Sail Pacific Boat Show in Oakland, CA. Chris and George were on hand to represent WCS and the RS Racing line of boats. As North America’s fastest growing small boat brand, RS Racing is on everyone’s minds lately and our booth was the place to be! A big thanks to everyone who came out to see us, check out the boats, and support your favorite small boat sailing store.
