Together with local sailors whom are usual to strong winds always blowing there, we had representatives from Rio Grande do Sul, Santa Catarina, Paraná, São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Espirito Santo, Sergipe, Bahia, Pernambuco and Paraíba states.

The championship started with two races traditional races, 'Ney Pacheco' for HC 14 and 'Mario Jose Dubeux Junior' for HC 16, a tribute for two persons that made history in the class. As expected, strong winds blew consistently throughout the championship, testing the skills of all competitors. At the end in Hobie 14 Fabio Espinar was crowned as the new Brazilian champion and the battle for Hobie Cat 16 title after ten races was intense till the last minute when the top two teams, skippers Bernardo Arndt and Claudio Cardoso, were tied with thirteen (13) points each. Only tiebreaker rules decided who is the new Hobie 16 national champion.
