Lake Habeeb, located within western Maryland's Rocky Gap State Park, has been a favorite destination for local sailors and paddlers alike, and was the homeport for the "Rocky Gap Hobie Fleet". Our group enjoyed a small, but active, membership - and at least two Hobie Cats could be seen sailing the clear mountain lake most anyday of the week.CLICK HERE if you're interested in learning more about our
Founded by Hobie Cat enthusiasts Derr Golladay and Joanie Johnston, the fleet's objectives encouraged camaraderie between multi-hull owners in the western Maryland area, but really, all sailboats and sailors were welcomed. Soon a variety of catamarans, a few trimarans, as well as several monohulls were sailing alongside Rocky Gap's Hobie fleet.

If you'll be visiting the wonders of western Maryland with your own sailboat, Rocky Gap State Park has ample trailer parking next to the boat ramp. Local sailors have found the size of our lake tends to limit a sailboat's size to 16' (more or less), for the most comfortable sailing and easier tacking. firstname.lastname@example.org
Just be sure to drop us a line if you'll be sailing out at "The Gap". Whenever possible, we'd much rather be sailing, and will likely drop whatever we're doing for the chance to get out on the water with you!
