What is the current status of opening hobie events to F-18 racing. I know we have all but 1 in our division 3 racing Hobies, but if we don't open the regatas to F-18's it would be hard to accrew points tward next years worlds in long beach. So we would have to skip some hobie events to travel to F-18 events.

The policy is the same as last year:

Event Qualification Requirements:
1) A request for F18 inclusion must approved by the HCANA Chairman and Race Director prior to NOR publication.
2) There shall be separate organizing authorities (OA):
a. An HCA Fleet or Division shall be the organizing authority for all Hobie One-Design fleets.
b. A separate organizing authority will be required for the F18 fleet. That organizing authority shall be a US Sailing / Canadian Yachting Association member class association or yacht club.
3) There must be a minimum of two (2) Hobie manufactured boats in the F18 start and the Hobie Cat manufactured entries shall comply with IHCA membership requirements.

Event Administration:
1) There will be no restrictions to the number of events held under this policy
2) F18 start shall be conducted under F18 class rules.
3) Hobie manufactured F18s shall be split out and awarded HCA points based on their finish. For the purposes of North American points scoring, the number of boats in the event shall be the number of Hobie Cat manufactured F18s registered in the event.
4) Regattas funded directly or indirectly by the HCA (National, North American or Area Championships) will not qualify under this policy.
5) Protests and/or measurement qualifications of the F18s shall be the responsibility of the F18 organizing authority.
