Front Range Island Owners (FRIO) is not an organization. It is a website that serves the owner community, along the Front Range of Colorado, USA, of the Hobie Mirage Adventure Island and Tandem Island, sailing, kayak trimarans (click on photos at right to enlarge). The owner of any sailing kayak of any brand is welcome to participate. Volunteer organizers in the owner community advance enjoyment of these unusual boats of sophisticated engineering. One way to describe these boats is that they are hybrids that they can be sailed, paddled and pedaled almost simultaneously. Their appeal is that their use encourages physical activity, while you are also having fun, that can lead to improved fitness

FRIO organizes sailing events. At these events Island owners can sail alongside other boats of the same type and exchange information. Often events include organized activities. All participants are responsible for making their own decisions about whether to launch and go boating. Among considerations are: safety, weather, their condition and abilities and those of their crew, the condition of their boat and the activity being undertaken and conditions on the water. 

This site  contains a Photo Gallery, Video Clips, and a Calendar of events. Our sponsors in the area are the wonderful folks at The New Anchorage. Feel free to Contact Us or send us email at islandowners@gmail.com. Alternately, you may post questions and comments on the Adventure and Tandem Island Forum hosted and monitored by the Hobie Cat Company.
