A strange phenomenon occurred at registration today. At first it was just one sailor, then another, and then …………

As we all know crew weight is important on Hobies, and weighing in is part of the registration process at a Hobie Nationals. This is nothing new. What the registration team witnessed this morning was new - a stream of sailors weighing in, then going to the toilet, and then jumping on the scales again to see how much weight they had dumped.

For the record - 800 grams was the best effort!
