For some sailors, Hobie racing is about competition and the exhilaration of winning (or losing) fairly. For others, it’s the challenge, excitement, concentration and physical exertion. But for the vast majority of Hobie sailors, it’s about fun, camaraderie, familiar places, new places, old friends and new, and memories of fun times with people who share a love of the sport.
Like any worthwhile activity in life, there is a right way and a wrong way to participate in Hobiesailing. The Hobie Class Rules set forth in this booklet, and the ISAF Racing Rules of Sailing (RRS) as distributed by your National Sailing Federation, are your guidelines to the right way to race … the Hobie way.
