Here is a peak at the venue: http://www.sail-world.com/index.cfm?Nid ... e=y&ntid=0

I am told it is a few hundred miles from where the summer Olympic sailing events were and the same time of year... 90 degrees.

Well, I guess my next logical question is, can we have a 16 WC in the U.S.? I know I could get a boat anywhere, but it'd be cool to have one from the WC's. Plus, they're decked out.
Thanks for the reply.

None are coming back here, but maybe someday? Usually events are every 2-3 years. Maybe here in the US someday.

We have arrived at the regatta site and are expecting our 5 40' containers of (60) new boats, parts and tools this morning (Monday here +9 from the West Coast).

We have a blog site started and intend to post daily text, images and video along the way. We are to have wireless on the beach, so should be able to keep it current.

Hobie Cat Company - Factory Report
The Factory Teams from Hobie Cat Australia and Hobie Cat USA are now on site to start the boat building process. The teams will build 60 identical Hobie Cat® 16's, for the 19th Hobie World Championships in Weihai China.


The containers are at the port and should arrive on the race site this Monday to start the boat building process. Hobie Cat Australasia's managing director, Steve Fields says; "This is an exciting time for us, to be able to prepare the boats for the sailors from around the world and to see a new Hobie Cat 16 World Champion crowned". Steve went on to say; "The city of Weihai, the Seaview Hotel staff and the China Worlds committee have been great to work with and they have gone out of their way to assist us with the running of the event at this early stage.

Hobie Cat USA's Matt Miller replied; "I must also say that the beach we are running the event from is perhaps the best beach we have had in many years! Like Steve, we look forward to running the event and seeing a new World Champion crowned."

The containers were delayed. Finally got started yesterday afternoon. We powered through the first 45 boats between yesterday afternoon and today (30 today). Hot and muggy.

A limited number of red trampolines will be available for the Hobie 16 beginning September 1st. Please contact your dealer and place your orders as there is already a lot of interest in this color.
