Qualifier Series is Underway

Series Three ~ 5:30 am Wind Report

Series Three kicks off today and sailors will be greeted with a NNE wind direction at around 16++ knots. The sea and swell is coming up and some of the Hobie beach crew had to shift boats late last night due to rising tide.

The big news for the Hobie Worlds beach crew is that the daily high temperatures and high humidity have gone for now. Who would have thought that the grey skies and light drizzle would be so welcome… stay tuned for race updates.
