Team Red on the Head... Hobie Wild Cat Wins the West Coast F18 Champs in San Francisco NOOD regatta.

Showing some serious performance advantage, the Hobie Wild Cat sails to another impressive win. This time the SF NOOD and F18 West Coast Championships! This follows close on the heals of two other big wins on Hobie Wild Cats in rugged offshore long-distance sailing. Most recently, the Great Texas 300. John Tomko and Ian Billings "Team Roughrider" took the win for both F18 and Over-all. Earlier this year, and sailing yet another Hobie Wild Cat in the Tybee 500, Team Bugaboo... Mischa Heemskerk and Eduard Zanen took both the F18 Class win and First to finish honors beating all of the Nacra 20 class as well.

At the SF NOOD this weekend, Greg Thomas and Jacques Bernier sailed their Hobie Wild Cat F18 a nearly perfect series for the win at the West Coast F18 Championships / San Francisco NOOD. Starting Saturday with a 1-1-2 they were just ahead of 2nd place Pete Melvin and his son sailing an Infusion at the end of the day. The third race on Saturday saw some real carnage on the course as the wind increased to 25 plus with many capsizes and damage including a broken mast on the C2 of Ian Sammis taking him out of the racing. Greg and Jacques nearly flipped as Jacques was pitched out ahead of their boat and he was run over... they were able to recover, drop the chute and get moving again for the only 2nd place finish of their series. Only 4 boats finished that race.

Sunday saw more of the same with Greg and Jacques dominating nearly every leg of the racing on their Wild Cat. They finished the day with a perfect 1-1-1!

Now it's off to the F18 Worlds and more Hot F18 action!

Go Hobie Team Red on the Head!!!
