Dear Hobie sailors,
The Hobie Europeans have concluded in Travemünde, Germany. Congratulations to all the competitors, winners and organisers for staging such a great event. It is encouraging to see former Hobie 16 Youth World Champion continue his wining way. The top 3 place getters in the Hobie 16 were from New Caledonia/France, Germany and Australia. Adding a Singaporean team in the top 10 and it shows the country depth of the Hobie 16 Class Below is a range of stories from the Europeans.
