Displayed here is a culmination of the greatest Hobie Cat Sailors that Australia has to offer.

From the nooks and crannies in Victoria, all the way up the eastern seaboard to the Sunshine State, and across the continent to the vast land in the West, we assemble the greatest Hobie Sailors throughout Australia. In doing so, we anticipate and dare to dream of the eventual outcome as we head into the 50th Australian Hobie Cat National Championships, taking place at the Vincentia Sailing Club in Jervis Bay, NSW.

So, as it is the 50th Anniversary of the Hobie Class in Australia, and to promote our competitive spirit along with the truely spectacular number of sailors in our class, the ANHCA thought we’d put together a ‘Minor Premiership’, of sorts. The top sailors, the greatest performed State and Sailing Clubs, along with those who have displayed the ‘Hobie Spirit’ across the 2022 Sailing Season, will receive special recognition at the welcoming ceremony for both the first and second series at the Hobie Nationals.

So stay tuned Cowboy Sailors, place your bets, and we’ll be seeing you all at the next event on the Championship Tour with the Hobie Family.
