The Hobie 16 is a very popular catamaran and well supported at the club. The Class thrives on having good fun, with these fast, easy to rig boats. There is great dealer and association support. Nedlands is the home to a number of very successful Hobie 16 sailors including World and National champions. With friendly yet competitive club racing and regattas on most weekends through the year, Hobie Class sailing is never dull and caters to a wide range of ages and abilities.
Definitely the one of the strongest class in WA and Australia, the 16 can be sailed not only in the open discipline but also Masters (over 45), Grand Masters ( over 55), Women’s and Youth (under 21). Sailed in Perth at Nedlands Yacht Club, and Jervoise Bay Sailing Clubs, also at country yacht clubs in Geraldton, Karratha, Albany and Broome, the 16 really caters for everyone.
With some of the top Hobie teams in the world residing in WA the new season will see the tightest racing over the entire fleet.
