Fleet in action - 2016 Hobie® 16 World Championship Hobie Cat
2016 Hobie® 16 World Championship - After three days of challenging competition we have now split the fleet for the Hobie® 16 World Championship, Open Series, Semi Finals!

Yesterday's racing got off to a late start as overnight rain had taken some of the wind from our sails but as they say, “That’s sailing”. Our Hobie 16 open qualifiers checked out their boats early so that the fleet could hit the water when the Race Officer had set the course and called for ‘off the beach’. The call came at around 11:30am after the sailors had prepped their cats, had an early lunch and even played some volleyball.

When the call came, it was ‘Game On’ with three back to back races in which to make it count. The afternoon’s racing brought the total number of races for the qualifying series to eight and conditions were once again light with shifty winds from six - eleven knots before clouds rolled in and closed out the day at the end of race eight. It is a testament to the Race Officer, Beach Crew and On Water Teams on organising quality racing despite light and shifty conditions.

Last night our sailors enjoyed each other’s company once again as the fleet was split and today we begin the Hobie 16 World Championship Open Semi Finals. At the close of the Qualifying Series, the provisional Semi Finals Competitor Listing is below.
