Good day sailors. With the weather hitting double-digit today and sailing around the corner, we are excited to announce our 2023 Annual General Meeting.

The 2023 Hobie 14 North American championships were hosted by Hobie Fleet 106 and the Rehoboth Bay Sailing Association. 22 Hobie 14 sailors lined up from all around North America to compete including 2 from BBCC (Andy and Nick).
The first days were warm with light to moderate winds with a light incoming tidal current. The current was light and only affected the light wind in morning races. Nine races were completed over the first two days.
On the third day, the warm pleasant weather we had been enjoying for a week came to an end. A strong cold front crossed the area bringing very strong winds. Sailors were on the water for what was forecasted to be a breezy day but with sailable winds. Partway through the first race of the day the cold front truly arrived with a different plan. The winds quickly increased to the upper 20 knots with gusts well in the 30’s and racing had to be abandoned. Before making it back to shore there was plenty of drama on the water with boats capsizing. Rehoboth Bay is quite shallow, and this ended with quite a lineup at the hose stations to clean the mud of masts and sails.
The goals were set and Andy came in the top 10 while Nicolas finished 3rd and the first Canadian making him the Canadian Hobie 14 National Champion.
