Recently the European Hobie Class Association held their Annual General Meeting. The European IHCA Vice President David Kaarsberg had announced his retirement some months ago. The AGM endorsed Hans van Nes to replace David. On behalf of all the IHCA we thank David for his work and contribution to the IHCA. The Hobie sailors in Denmark will continue to have David’s enthusiasm as he remains the President of the Danish Hobie Class Association. The IHCA welcomes Hans and looks forward to working with him.

In recent months there have been many natural disasters. The recent earthquake in Christchurch New Zealand has devastated the country. Though showing their resilience to such disasters the New Zealand Hobie Nationals will be held in March. Already people from overseas have indicated they will be attending to support the New Zealand Hobie sailor’s. Also some of the Christchurch Hobie sailors have indicated they will also attend. We wish them all the success with their endeavours.
