The 2016 U.S. Multihull Championship (Hobie Alter Trophy) and the 2016 Hobie 17 North American Championship are quickly approaching and if you haven’t registered, sign up today!!!! You don’t want to miss out! These two regattas will be held concurrently from Monday, August 22nd through Friday, August 26th, 2016. The regatta venue is Carlyle Sailing Association, located in Carlyle, IL, about one-hour east of St. Louis, MO. The U.S. Multihull Championship will be sailed on Hobie 18s.
Holding these two regattas concurrently provides a larger group of competitors, so there should be plenty of competition on the water and plenty of fun off the water. The Carlyle Sailing Association is one of the Midwest’s premier one-design sailing venues. It has a large beach area for catamarans, hot showers, flush toilets, and room to relax. Planning is still ongoing, but things are shaping up and I expect it to be a pretty fantastic week of sailing and fun. There is a live band (Rosewood Band) and bonfire scheduled for the Wednesday night catered dinner and the giveaways/raffle prizes are coming in. Each competitor will receive an awesome commemorative duffle bag, along with some goodies from our sponsors. And we have quite a list of sponsors, including U.S. Sailing, Gill, Hobie (signature sponsors), Samson Rope, Ronstan, Harken, Murrays Sports, APS, Fox 40 World, North Sail, Team Mclube, Magic Marine, and Kräftig by William K Busch Brewing Company. For those who have not sailed at CSA, I think they will find it a real treat.
