On established fleets Hobie 16 racing might still be about the most competitive racing out there.

Gavin Colby: "As much as the boat is not flash and modern, the racing is close, tactical, one design and cheap. Great bunch of young kids at the regatta. We used a boat that I sold for 6000 AUD at the end of the event.

With a Great bunch of friendly people racing was fair and competitive. Testing conditions as we lost a day with too much wind.

Temperature range from 41’c to 22’c on the last day. The event was also qualifying for the upcoming Hobie 16 Worlds in Florida: https://hobieworlds.com

Next is F18 Aussie Nationals also in Adelaide in 2 weeks time.
