It is with heavy hearts that the difficult decision has been made to CANCEL the 2020/21 Hobie Cat Nationals. With continued uncertainty brought about by Covid-19 border closures, there is no way this could be a truly national event.

In a unanimous decision, the Australian National Hobie Class Association, and the 5 State Associations have agreed that the nationals will be sailed in NSW in the 2021-22 sailing season.

The NSW Hobie Cat Association is now working towards securing a venue for the next Australian Nationals. We will advise you of the venue and dates as soon as possible.

Jervis Bay

28th December 2020 to 5th January 2021

The Hobie Class is returning to the scene of the 2014 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 returns

This year we are mixing it up a bit by tweeking 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 guys can now sail their "main event" and then kick into fun mode and jump on a 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.
