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.”
