Hobie 16 Polish Nats 2017 @Nordcup

Photos by Sail Spotting & report below sent by Michał Korneszczuk / Regaty Nord Cup 2017.  Great pics from the Hobie 16 Polish Nats 2017, H16s have around 40yrs, still a super competitive fleet and one of the toughest cats to sail & race in the breeze, the benefits is after learning how to sail them anything else will be a kids game.
Hobie Multi Worlds & Europeans 2017 will be held at Noordwijk - The Netherlands. More than 240 entries by now: hobieworlds.com
"Polish Hobie 16 Nationals 2017 were held in Gdansk on past weekend.  We had a good mix of conditions. First day was low-moderate, but very puffy. Then we had a day of 12-18knots, to conclude with 16-21knots on Monday.

It was nice to see comeback of  the brothers who weren't straight favorites  before the regatta . However what it was also clear to see that UKS Navigo (host club of A-Cat Worlds) is getting stronger and stronger and that there is depth within club to have jung sailors to step up after likes of Tymo Bendyk or Kuba Surowiec."
