Why choose the Hobie 16?
The Hobie 16 boasts an unparalleled legacy, with over 117,000 units manufactured in the last four decades, making it the most widespread catamaran in the world.
Not just another sailing competition, Hobie 16 class racing adheres to strict one-design rules, ensuring a level playing field for all. This makes for exciting and equitable racing, where a well-sailed, slightly older Hobie can be just as competitive as a brand-new one, leveling the playing field and providing an affordable entry point for aspiring youth and families.
Hobie enthusiasts are a special breed. Many of our most dedicated sailors have traveled the globe with their Hobies, fostering a tight-knit community. When they visit a new country, their first instinct is to connect with the local Hobie fleet. Hobie sailors are renowned for their welcoming and amicable nature, always eager to share racing insights and rigging tips to enhance the overall competitiveness of the fleet.
Our calendar is brimming with exciting regattas, including open class events, training weekends, and National Championships. We also love to join the Jersey fleet whenever possible, and we venture even further to International Events such as the Hobie Europeans and the Hobie Worlds, often hosted in breathtaking locations around the world.
