The 22nd Hobie 16 World Championships has concluded an what a great event. A huge thank you to the 504 athletes that attended. Also, well as their friends and family which came to support them and enjoy the Hobie hospitality. With two days lost in the sailing. One day due to no wind and one with too much wind. Yes, that is right for all those saying it never blows in Florida were surprised.
For those that want to relive the moment of a Hobie Worlds we have so much information on the Hobie Worlds web site . Also on the IHCA YouTube page has some of the best footage of sailing I have seen. The drone shots give a totally different perspective. I would recommend sailors to view this for training and improving their sailing. See how the best sailors, start and handle their boats.
While we honour and congratulate the podium placegetters, we acknowledge and thank all the sailors for making the Hobie Worlds so special. We also acknowledge all the volunteers who gave up their time to make sure the sailors had such an enjoyable time both on and off the water.
To our sponsor a big thank you. As without your support we would have no world championships. Through your generous support we had an excellent worlds because of your support.
