After the devastating decision made by the Great Lakes Sailing Club to cancel the 50th Anniversary of the Wildcat Regatta, and NSW being unable to exit the dreaded lockdown in time for the October long-weekend, the NSW Hobie Cat Association were faced with a difficult situation on their hands. Not only that, the 50th Anniversary of the Australian Hobie Cat National Championships tragically postponed due to restrictions experienced throughout Australia.

Yet, through headstrong perseverance and some solid collaborative discourse with our mates from the Vincentia Sailing Club, Jervis Bay Brewing Co. and Hobie Cat Asia Pacific. The NSWHCA is proud to announce that the Hobie 14 State Championships, along with the Hobie 16 Women and Youth, will be held at the Vincentia Sailing Club in Jervis Bay (home to the 50th Australian Hobie Cat National Championships).

The event will take place from 2nd January through to 5th January, with presentation taking place on the evening of the final day of racing.
Social events will include a welcoming party to be held at the Jervis Bay Brewing Co. in Huskisson, with presentation to be held after sailing at the Vincentia Country Club.
NOTE: If enough races are completed over the first 3-days of the event, the 5th will become a lay-day.

This event will be open to all CLASS LEGAL Hobie 14s and Hobie 16s of Women and Youth Helm/Crew.
There will also be a start line available to all other classes of Hobie Cat, so if you don’t fit in with one of the above classes, you won’t miss out!
Additionally, the NSWHCA and ANHCA are proud to announce that this event will also be home to the FIRST EVER Hobie Dragoon National Championships! This is a class of Hobie Cat that has World Championships, with a enthusiastic fleet already sailing out of Somers Yacht Club in Victoria. It will be an excellent opportunity to showcase this terrific boat for the next generation of Hobie Sailors.

So, whether you’ve just bought or are looking to buy one of the BRAND NEW European Hobie 14s that have arrived in the country …. or you’re Botoxing the deck, re-gel-coating the hull or gluing up the castings of your RETRO Hobie 14 …. this is going to be spectacle for the ages.
Keep an eye on the forecast and stay tuned for more action to come.
