The China Worlds Beach Team

Each time we have a Hobie Cat 16 Worlds (in the Hobie Australia or Hobie USA’s region) a Hobie Worlds Beach Team is put together. This year, the team was put together by Hobie Cat Australasia's managing Director, Steve Fields.

Steve made the comments: "For me it is all about the sailors and the Hobie 16 Worlds experience. For some it is their first Hobie Cat Worlds and for others one of many. We hand pick the team that can handle working away from home, working in rain and tropical conditions and work as part of a team. For the last few Hobie Cat 16 Worlds we have had the same beach crew. This comes at a cost to the company but the net result is a better Hobie Cat 16 Worlds for the sailors. This is also helpful for the race committee who have the job of getting races in no matter what the conditions throw at them or us. In the Hobie Cat 16 Worlds, boat turn-around is critical. I think our best time is 12 minutes to turn-around 56 boats. That’s not bad in my book.”
