Hobie 16 at San Francisco
David Brookes, Friday, 31 May 2013
Hundreds of thousands of anxiously awaiting spectators will have the pleasure of watching some additional multihull action as the US Sailing Multihull Championship for the Hobie Alter Trophy will be racing on the America’s Cup course as a precursor to the opening race of the America’s Cup.
Looking back where this all began, many would point to the cover of Time magazine, where a Hobie was caught in mid-air, flying over a monstrous wave. It seems fitting the Hobie 16 was selected for this 2013 championship.
America’s Cup spectators will have a special opportunity to watch additional multihull racing as the 2013 U.S. Multihull Championship for the Hobie Alter Trophy will race on the America’s Cup course on September 7 as a unique precursor to the opening race.
The Hobie 16, iconic to the world of multihull sailing, is ideal for this US Sailing Championship.
The Sausalito Yacht Club (Calif.) has put together an amazing team to make this an outstanding event with great competition and a special experience.
