2020-21 Australian Hobie Cat National Championships

The Hobie Class is returning to the scene of the 2015 Hobie 16 Worlds and 2010 Australian Nationals on the crystal clear waters of Jervis Bay. Vincentia Sailing Club are excited to have the Hobie family return to the club, and are looking forward to an even bigger fleet than the 100 boats at the Vincentia Nationals of 2010.

Now is the time to start planning your holiday at Vincentia and sail with the iconic backdrop of Point Perpendicular.

2 Series Format

This year we are mixing it up a bit by altering the format. The Hobie 16 Open event will take place first, with the mixed fleet in the second series. We know there are quite a few 16 teams that take their H16 Open nationals very seriously. These sailors can now sail their “main event” and then kick into fun mode and jump on a Hobie¬† 14, 18 Tiger or Wildcat to mix it up in series 2. This will also make more boats available for the H16 Youth and Women events in Series 2.

Bushfire impact
Like many parts of Australia the NSW South Coast has suffered devastating impacts from the recent bushfires. Not only have hundreds of people lost their homes, businesses up and down the coast are struggling after towns were evacuated during what should’ve been the peak holiday season. This event at Vincentia is a great opportunity to support a regional area that relies on tourism.
