HCAWA sailors take out the top 2 places in the 20th Hobie 16 World Championships in Jervis Bay, NSW Australia.
What a fantastic outcome for Nedlands YC sailors Gavin Colby and Josie Mark, and Cam Owen and Suzzi Ghent to claim 1st and 2nd places respectively in the event. Gavin, being a previous World Champion and Cam being the current Australian champion persevered the light to moderate winds to beat close to 200 Australian and international teams.
Additionally, HCAWA Guy Birchall and Tayla Woodhead also had great success coming a creditable 2nd in the Hobie 16 World Youth Championship, also sailed on Jervis Bay!
Big thanks to Hobie Cat Australia for organising the event where further event details, results and photos can be found at www.hobieworlds.com

New to Hobie® Catamarans?
Hobie Cats were born in a surfboard shop in Southern California in 1969 and are named after the designer, Hobie Alter. Numerous Hobie catamarans have been designed over the years with the most popular racing boats ranging from 14 feet to 20 feet. The boats are easy to sail and virtually indestructible.
The Hobie 16 is the most popular catamaran in the world and Western Australia has one of the largest and most competitive fleets, being 25 regular boats in Nedlands and 7 in Geraldton. It is a great starter catamaran as used boats are cheap, available and relatively competitive where club members are always willing to assist new sailors.
