There will be more than 16 of these brilliant Hobie 14s competing in the National Hobie Championships this weekend on the Knysna Lagoon, a sight not to be missed.
KNYSNA NEWS - The Knysna Yacht Club was involved in hosting or assisting in a number of first-class Regattas, from national to international level.
With a history of success, Knysna has been chosen as the venue for the Hobie 14 National Championships to be sailed in Knysna from January 16 to 18. For information contact Gayle Newby on 082 491 1343.
Knysna’s regattas are always well remembered for hospitality, fun, good sailing, and great prizes. For spectators it will be a colourful scene packed with action. Registration begins on Friday morning, and the first race will begin after the noon hooter.
Our local world champions William and Lucinda Edwards and Blaine Dodds will be taking part, so the racing will be top class, very competitive and spectacular. You have to see Blaine Dodds sailing to understand just how quick he is! Dodds, a Knysna Yacht Club member, has been awarded the 2014 Sailor of the Year title by Sailing SA which is a great achievement of which we can all be proud.
The popular braais are all organised and are open to the competitors, Knysna Yacht Club members and their friends and family as well.
