HOBIE 16 CLASS RACING

HOBIE NATIONALS 2021 SIGN UP NOW OPEN – SEE BELOW.

Welcome to the Hobie Class Racing Pages.

Our new British Hobie Class Association was formed in 2020 with a plan to organize regular racing and work with existing cat events, the Hobie fleet in Jersey, and the rest of Europe to provide a full calendar of events. Then 2020 happened and we have had to put back our plans. We are still seeing what is possible in 2021, but for now, we have confirmed the dates for the Hobie 16 Nationals at Poole Yacht Club

The Hobie 16 Nationals will be at Poole Yacht Club on the August Bank Holiday 2021.

Hobie 16 Racing – Join the local Hobie 16 Racing Fleet at Poole Yacht Club.

Training on Hobie Dragoons at Poole Yacht Club for Younger members

The beauty of the Hobie 16 as a racing catamaran.   If you are looking to go racing on catamarans or you would just like a bit of fun then the Hobie 16 is a great cat to get started on.  Our events are friendly and fun and open to all sailors even those who have had little racing experience.

Join the growing fleet of Hobie 16s racing regularly in the UK. With used boats available from as little as £1500 and a local fleet at Poole Yacht Club you can enjoy the challenge of racing on a Hobie 16 at local club level or in the Hobie 16 Nationals at Poole Yacht Club.  Additional training events can be booked in advance of the Nationals if required.  If you would like us to organize a race training event, get in touch and let us know that you are interested.
