Hobie MultiEuropeans 2011 -  Hobie Class Association?nid=84302  
Hobie Europeans 2011
The Hobie Europeans web site has the Notice of Race, online entry form, accommodation and lots more information.

As always the Hobie Europeans is a high quality Hobie event and it should not be missed.

Lake Neusiedl and its countryside are well known for their hospitality and friendliness. An area rich of wineries and nice people will be our hosts in 2011. I could personally check the area already in 2007 and again in 2011 and can tell you, that this is an excellent venue.

Warm water and warm air temperatures are perfect hosts to make an event like the Hobie MultiEuropeans again a memorable event that the world will talk about!

Smooth grass areas for both, boats and tents just situated at the beaches of Lake Neusiedl will make it easy to run an event like this.

A bar and restaurant at the yacht club will be good for the Après-Sailing-Time. The dealer being just close by and ready for support.

Also the accompanying families will meet their advantages – lots of things to do, a swimming area close by with a nice playground, nice countryside, perfect for taking a ride on the bicycle or the train station that will take you in less than an hour to downtown Vienna – a site perfect for your vacation and Hobie Life!

Tanzacat Open 2011 -  Hobie Class Association?nid=84302  

Tanzacat 2011
Tanzacat 2011 dates have been announced 2-11 September. This world acclaimed event has included the Zanzibar Raid. With a limited number of brand new Hobie Tiger and Hobie 16 (that is right brand new charter boats available) this is another Hobie event not to miss.

Hobie Fleet 252 in Suva, Fiji conducted an introduction to Hobie sailing. From that they have 25 new Hobie members all signed up.

Well done to Hobie Fleet 252 for assisting the local community in Suva. It is encouraging to see a Hobie Fleet assisting the local villages. Giving people who would normally never have an opportunity to sail the chance to sail and importantly sail a Hobie.

Apart from being one of Australia’s most popular tourist destinations, Mooloolaba is also one of Australia’s premier Hobie Cat Racing venues and the scene of some of the biggest, best and brightest Hobie Cat regatta’s ever held in Australia. It has been a few years since a major regatta was held in Mooloolaba and anticipation is high for one of the largest and highest quality fleets ever.

The organising association, Queensland Hobie Cat Association, is also pleased to announce the continued support of long time sponsors Hobie Cat Australasia (HCA) and Hogs Breath Café for the event. HCA have indicated charter boats may be available for international crews.

The NOR is now posted on the website: http://hobiecatnationals.com.au/ together with some initial information regarding accommodation. See you there !!
