The Hobie Multi-Worlds and Hobie 16 Europeans was a spectacular success in terms of numbers
of competitors and sailing conditions. In every series there was a variety of conditions ensuring it was a challenge for the sailors in all conditions. Thank you to all the sailors for attending the events. For those at home we had nearly 30,000 views each week on our Facebook page. A special thanks goes to Christopher Hancock and his crew Valerie Vanheukelom for their outstanding sportsmanship. They immediately stopped racing and went to the aid of an injured sailor involved in incident they were not involved in with. While racing is important our sailors safety is always of paramount importance.
Thank you to all the sponsors, Circolo Vela Gargnano (the sailing club), all the volunteers for making the Hobie Multi-Worlds and Hobie 16 Europeans for the Hobie sailors and Hobie such a memorable sailing event. To all the Hobie sailors that attended a big thank you for making the Hobie Multi-Worlds and Hobie 16 Europeans such a wonderful Hobie regatta".There are daily videos uploaded on our YouTube site, photo on a Flickr site that has over 1,000 photos, we have the full results.
