Dear Hobie sailor, 


Over 130 paid entries, the Grand Masters and Masters entries closed, with a building reserve list for the Grand Masters and Masters entries. With over 5 months before the first race for the Hobie 16 World Championships the Hobie 16 Worlds in Fiji these world championships are shaping up to be an exciting time for the Hobie sailors. Check out the entry list at the world’s web site www.hobieworlds.com 


While the entries are closed for the Grand Masters and Masters entries are still being taken for the Youth, Women and Open World Championships. So don’t wait and find you will be disappointed. Enter today at www.hobieworlds.com


If you are looking for a crew for the 18th Hobie 16 World championships, then you have to look no further than the message board. There is a growing list of experienced crews wanting to help you compete at the worlds. So don’t let the “no Crew” be an excuse to miss out on these worlds.


Thank you to Mark Laruffa, Peter Manley and Toebelmann Burkhard for sending their photos from the 1986 Hobie 16 Worlds in Fiji. It brings back memories for those that did attend those worlds. 21 years later and we are still seeing some of the Top 10 sailors in the photos at Hobie regattas. The question is “who is going to be in the Tope 10 photo in 2007?”


The IHCA Rules Committee has posted the rule changes for comment for the Hobie Tiger and Hobie 14. The comment period ends 30th April. It is your Class so please have input on YOUR Class Rules.
