    Hobie World Cat

    What is the Hobie World Cat?

    The Hobie World Cat is an exclusive regatta, where only teams of the worlds best Hobie 16 sailors compete. Prosail, organising authority, will be the host for the selected teams for the whole event: the sailors get an accomodation nearby the event area, food & drinks and a Hobie 16 branded with their national flags.

    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.

    How to qualify for the Hobie World Cat?

    ProSail will elect Hobie 16 teams from different countries according to their national ranking and the results of World and continental championships.
    The elected sailors will get a personal invitation from ProSail Sail Events.

    You could also apply for one of the famous starting places. The only thing you need to do is to write a short application and add a recommendation of your national class association. Send your application to info@prosail.de.

  • 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.
