The Hobie® Asian Championship is on next month at the same location as the last Hobie 16 World Championships. It will be held at a different monsoon time which will give entirely different sailing conditions. This time there will be the cooler, drier northerly monsoon. The organizers are offering 1,500/1,200/1,000 USD for first/second/third places in both the Hobie 16 Open and Master classes. The Hobie Asian sailors are already entering, though the championships and prize money is open to all Hobie sailors. It is a great opportunity to win a Hobie regatta and get some cash as well. The hotel is offering discounts again for the sailors.

This month we have BRASCAT 2017 will take place Porto Alegre from 10-18 November 2017. This is the Brazilian Hobie 14 and 16 National championship.
