The Hobie 16s and Waves might try doing what Dave Ingram is doing for the F18s. He's proposed a Winter Series of five events, including the Charlotte Harbor Regatta in February.
Pick several events, set a minimum number of ones to qualify for the points championship, get Hobie USA to sponsor a prize or three and there you go.
We had a dozen Hobie 16s here in Charlotte this past February and it sounds as if we'll be closer to 18-20 in 2011 (Feb. 3-6).
The 2011 Charlotte Harbor Regatta is shaping up to be a huge multihull event, with Wetas, F18s, F16s, Hobie 16s and Waves. We're looking at some 60 multis and would love to be part of the snowbird/winter series. I offered Dave Ingram a point series battle flag and extend the same offer for the H16s.
