Hobie 16 World Championships - Master Class action underway + Video


'Master Class on the water for day 1 of the 2014 Hobie 16 World Championships'    Hobie Cat Australasia

The Hobie® World Championships was officially opened by Mayor or Shoalhaven Joanna Gash on Friday night at the Opening Ceremony and Masters Class Welcome. Live music, speeches and canapés were followed by fireworks on what was a great occasion for sailors young and old to rekindle old rivalries and have a few laughs before getting down to the business of racing.

Today, Saturday the first of February marked the first day of racing with the Masters class getting off to a slow start. The 20 - 30 knot winds we have seen over the past week were no where to be found this morning but the weather gods eventually smiled on huskisson and the sailors around midday with sunshine, Mid 20ºC and a healthy six knots allowing the Masters to get out there and do what they do best.

Due to the light and shifty conditions we were only able to get two races off today but taking out the first race was the Brazilian team of Claudio Teixeira and Bruno Reis with a good start coming from second place at the A mark and moving into first at the gate, holding the lead to the finish line.

Second place was taken by William and Lucinda Edwards from South Africa, coming from ninth at the A mark and moving up to fourth at the gate, to take second across the line and Rod and Kerry Waterhouse from Australia coming in third in race one.

Race 2 was taken out by local father and son team Mick and Patrick Butler, Skipper and previous world champion Mick came from fourth at the A mark, moved up at every position to claim victory at the line.

Second was taken by Brazilians, Ricardo Halla and Marcela Mendes followed by Tahitians, Francois Macouin and Marie Dubois coming in third.

The weather looks set to deliver tomorrow with mid to high 20º's, sun and most importantly good winds of around nine knots expected in time of a punctual start to the days racing.
