I am inviting all sailors to the 2019 Hobie 16/ Hobie 20 North American Championships to be held at Harrison Hot Springs in Beautiful British Columbia, Canada. Harrison is a small tourist town that is located in the Fraser Valley about 90 minutes east of Vancouver or about 3 hours north of Seattle, WA. It is a town that is famous for its outdoor activities that include hiking, biking, golf, local tourism, farm tours and of course water sports. Know for its consistent wind, it is a popular venue for windsurfer, kite boarders and of course Hobie Sailing! This location has been on the Division 4 regatta schedule for over 35 years and is the location for the annual Division 4 Championships Regatta.

Information about the town, accommodations and the various activities surrounding the area can be found on the Tourism Harrison Website.

The Notice of Race and other information for the regatta can be found on the Hobie Division 4 Website.

Online information including the NOR and registration is available through the Regatta Network event site.. This is also where we will be posting SI's and other documents as they arrive.

A video presentation has been made to give you a visual of the town and the sailing conditions we expect to see. Harrison Video

If you come, you will be glad you did. If you don't, you will regret it!

On behalf of the 2019 NA committee, We look forward to being your hosts!

SEE YOU HERE!!

Any questions, please let us know.

Well, it all depends on where you are coming from......:)
If you're coming from Florida or somewhere along the Gulf Coast, it's 'damn cold!', dry suit and woollies....
If you're coming from anywhere in Canada.... shorts and t-shirts....
Most people feel the water is cool and generally wear wetsuits and spray tops or lightweight dry suits....
So depending on what you are used to.... better to prepare for cooler water.... The lake is fed by rivers from glaciers, but it does warm up a bit after the summer....only a bit.... but it is nice, clean, fresh water.

I am letting everyone know that if you are thinking about booking a room at the Harrison Beach Hotel, you need to call the Hotel directly to make your reservation. We have all the rooms blocked off for our event at a special rate, but only until March 13th. Before that if you try to book online, there will be no rooms available. As of today, 7 rooms are booked, so make your calls early!

Just a reminder to all if you haven't done so already, to guarantee a space at the Harrison Beach Hotel (unless of course they sellout! ) you need to contact them directly BEFORE March 13 to get the Hobie group rate. Right now the rooms are limited and only available to Hobie Sailors. After Mar 13 they become available to the public. You may still be able to get the group rate, but we cannot ensure the rooms will be available. Call them directly to make a reservation!

This Hotel is right along the beach front and only a 10 min walk from the regatta site... Amenities include Indoor pool, hot tub, wireless internet, fitness center, underground parking and more... Some rooms have a great view of the lake and beach front...

The Harrison Beach Hotel is now open to the public to reserve during the dates of our event. If you haven't booked yet, and still would like to, there are rooms available. To get the event discount, either call the hotel directly or use their online booking and use code HCR-19 when booking...
