    6 days of spectacular racing in the surf of Sylt, directly in front of the beach where thousands of visitors cheer the sailors on the water. All races are live commented by two professional moderators. Every evening a nice music program on the event stage and a big price giving ceremony where the winner team will get the coveted trophy.

  • The ultimate Hobie 16 speed challenge

    A worldwide unique speed race!

    Within spitting distance to the visitors and parallel to the beach the Hobie 16 sailors have to sail a 320-m-long distance as fast as possible. Each competing Team has several attempts to make their fastest run in a specific time slot.

    The speed race was first developed in August 2016 by the organizers of the Hobie 16 World Cat on the famous island Sylt, Germany. But the idea of this speed challenge was already some years ago in their mind, but they have waited for the perfect circumstances: best wind & weather, excellent race management, the perfect time measurement team and the worlds best Hobie 16 sailors.
