Division 8 Regatta Schedule - 2016

Here is the preliminary 2016 Regatta Schedule for Division 8. This coming year has a lot of full weekend regattas on the calendar, and includes the Mid-winters in March and leaves room open for next year’s Hobie North Americans Championships taking place in September. 2016 is shaping up to be a good year to be racing a Hobie in Florida!!

Tradewinds Regatta - January 16-18 - HCA POINTS REGATTA This is a three day regatta over Martin Luther King Holiday weekend. This is an annual regatta that takes place on Islamorada in the Florida Keys. There is always a good class of Hobie Waves and Hobie 16s. Sailors from across the country come down to get some sailing in during the winter. Points will count for Hobie classes that follow the Hobie HCA one-design class rules. Last year the Hobie 16 was the largest fleet in the Regatta!!

In addition to the above don’t forget about the twice-a-month club races at the Gulfport Yachtclub:

Gulfport Yacht Club Club Race Series - This yacht club is Gulfport/St.Petersburg Florida hosts a Saturday Club race twice a month on the first and third Saturday. This typically involves 2-4 buoy races. Typically it starts with one open Portsmouth class which is most A-Cats and Hobie 16s. After the first start, the following races go off separately for the A-class and Hobie 16 class as necessary. These races are a great way to keep your sailing skills in shape, and to get out for a day of competitive buoy racing. Gulfport Yacht Club is also home to Hobie Fleet 5. See the clubs website for schedule and more details. http://www.gulfportyachtclub.com/

Hope to see you there.
