Post subject:  2019 Hobie 16/ Hobie 20 North American Championships

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.

I would love to attend my second 16 NA, but driving myself and boat 40 hours to get there does not sound fun. Does anyone know of a boat/trailer hauling service, so I could just fly there? What should I expect the cost to be for such a service (2500 miles)? Maybe chartering a boat locally would actually be cheaper than that option... thoughts from experienced sailors?

Hi Brad
40 hour drives can be fun!.... i do it all the time.... the best thing is to get 2 or 3 boats together, stack them up and get 2 or 3 drivers and go..... just make sure you like the people you're driving with... :) Our trips are always non-stop, but they don't have to be, depends on your timeline, and it's a cool way to see the country and maybe stuff you'd never have the chance otherwise. For our trips we always just split the cost of fuel with the owner of the vehicle/ trailer paying a little bit less to help cover wear and tear... Our trips cross country usually cost $500-$600 per boat with 3 boats on the trailer. Depends on your tow vehicle and gas mileage. I've towed 2 and 3 stack with a Chevy trailblazer and 3-4 boats with a Yukon and usually average about 10-12 mpg. And these were H18's.
If you have a good boat I would recommend bringing it if at all possible. We are in the process of locating charter boats, but they may be slim pickings especially for newer boats, as i hope most of them will be sailing.
Where are you coming from? Let people know and talk it up with other sailors in your area to create some interest for stacking...

Thanks for the encouragement and ideas Paul! I live in Northern Alabama near a town called Huntsville. I'll check with the Ocean Springs Yacht Club folks I like to sail with, I expect a few of them may be similarly inclined.

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...

We’re coming!!!

Will be my first big Hobie event and couldn’t be more excited!

What’s the camping situation like? I have a truck mounted tent that I’d like to pop up. Should we book a site in advance?

Any info would be much appreciated!
Matt

Matt... yes, it is best to book in advance. It is a small resort town and some camping is closer to the event site than others....
Your best bet is to try the Glencoe Motor Court. It is right 'downtown', right beside the Pub, and about a 10 min or less walk to the event site. There are several other Hobie people staying there as well so you will be in relatively good company?
