The Story…

Who would’ve thought that after 50 years in Australia, the Hobie Cat Class would be as thrilling, influential and undoubtedly unique as it was all those years ago??

Just about everyone!

The Vincentia Sailing Club, in conjunction with the NSW Hobie Cat Association and Hobie Cat Asia Pacific are overwhelmingly proud to be hosting the 50th Australian Hobie Cat National Championships on the glorious waters of Jervis Bay, NSW. What is questionably undisputed as the greatest sailing location in Australia, or even the world!

Home to the 2011 Australian Hobie Cat National Championships, and the 2014 Hobie 16 World Championships, Jervis Bay is well accustomed to the colour and excitement that Hobie Racing brings to each and every event.

The 50th National Championships will be a duel series, with key details below:

Series 2: 2nd January – 5th January 2023.

National Championship for:

  • Hobie 14
  • Hobie 16 Youth
  • Hobie 16 Women
  • Dragoon
  • Tiger
  • Wildcat

As this is the 50th Anniversary of Hobie Cat in Australia, there will be a strong emphasis on the social and celebratory side of the regatta with smaller events and social activities planned to take place over the duration of the event, all being held on the hallowed grounds of the Vincentia Sailing Club.
