Hobie 14 Training & Development Weekend

Vincentia Sailing Club


Winter’s well and truly here, but has that ever stopped us before?

The first half of the 2023 Australian Hobie Cat Championship Tour is all but packed away for the winter, it’s time to start looking forward to what’s coming up on the Hobie Family’s calendar.

The Hobie 14 class is only getting stronger around the country, and during the ‘off-season’, it’s about time we begin training, developing and fine tuning our skills as helms on the original off-the-beach catamaran.

Check out some of the stories so far from the Age of the Resurgence:

Vincentia Sailing Club’s Paddy & Mick Butler, along with Palm Beach Sailing Club’s Rod Waterhouse, have locked in their spots to compete in the Hobie 14 World Championships in Cesenatico, Italy in July. In support of our Aussie Representatives, the VSC & NSWHCA will be hosting a Hobie 14 Training & Development Weekend on the faithful waters of Jervis Bay.

Over the weekend of the 24/25 June, with the option of sailing Friday afternoon, the Vincentia Sailing Club & the NSW Hobie Cat Association will host a Hobie 14 Worlds Training Weekend.
