22nd Hobie 16 World Championship – Captiva Island, November 1st – 16th, 2019


The Hobie 16 World Championship at Captiva Island, Florida from November 1st to the 16th, 2019.

The International Hobie® Class Association (IHCA), is excited to announce that the 22nd Hobie 16 World Championship will be taking place this November 1st to the 16th in Captiva Island, Florida. Sailors from around the world will be competing in three world championship disciplines; Women’s, Youth, and Open, and three additional disciplines; Masters Cup, Grand Masters Cup, and Great Grand Masters Cup.

The Hobie 16 World Championships is the only sailboat class in the world that supplies brand-new identical boats for all of it’s participants. Hobie Cat Company will provide the boats that will be used exclusively on the race course located just off Sunset Beach, at the north end of Captiva Island. This ensures that the world champions are the best sailors, not just the sailors with the best equipment.

“The water, white sandy beaches, weather, people and location offer some of the best sailing conditions I have seen. As a company, we are proud to be a major part of these world championships.” said Doug Skidmore, CEO of Hobie Cat Company.
