The Wild West (Part 3)
Welcome to the second day of the 2023 Western Australian Hobie 16 State Championship, where sun is shining (always), the breeze is blowing (eventually) and the drinks are flowing (once we’ve de-rigged [but also whilst de-rigging]). Lance & Lucinda, Ice-Man & Rose, Trent & Natalia, along with TITV’s Paddy & Pelican, are taking you for a helluva ride on the water as the ‘Freo Doctor’ blows snot for the afternoon session. Meanwhile, Elisabeth introduces to the many characters that make the Western Australian Hobie Family some of the nicest and skilled catamaran sailors in the world.
