Objective Australia Launch 'Be there'

Unless you have been sleeping under a rock for the past year you should know all about the Red Bull Youth AC coming up and how Australia is finally going to make it back into the cup (ok not the real one but close enough).

Below is a message from Super Coach Traks Gordon about the launch.

Hi All,

As you are most likely aware Objective Australia was successful in obtaining selection to compete in the inaugural Red Bull Youth America's Cup in San Francisco, September 2013.

To celebrate, you are invited to join us at RPAYC on Sat March 23 to meet the team, hear about the pathway to this point and the plans moving forwards.

This is an exciting opportunity for the young sailors competing. More importantly, it is exciting for Australia as finally we again have a team to follow in this most prestigious event.

I really hope you can attend.

If you can't come please like our Facebook and enjoy our journey!/events/460593260680983/

Kind Regards,


Skipper Jason Waterhouse

Super Coach Traks Gordon

Please if you're free this night come down to the club as we want this night to be the biggest night ever.

Sorry All

I have to say sorry for my lack of updates on here but after a few computer problems and a truck load of work and a new little baby all added in the mix, time has been one small thing that has been lacking.

But the good news is we are all undercontrol now and up and running again.
So hang around and the reports will start to flow again.

The bad news is due to everything that has been going on I had to make a huge call and miss out on doing the record run to Hobart on the mighty TA.
The good news is the boys pulled it off and set a new record, now we just need to find another to chase.

2014 Hobie 16 World Titles (Australia)

Well here is something that everyone has been waiting for. Great work by Steve Fields after 1,1/2 yrs of hard work and planning has paid off.
I have a feeling this could be the biggest regatta of 2014 and one me and my family are booking in.

Dear Hobie sailors,

The IHCA is pleased to announce the 20th Hobie 16 Worlds will be at Jervis Bay, New South Wales, Australia. The world championship event will take place in Australia in 2014 with the opening ceremony on January 31 and competition continuing through to the open finals and closing ceremony on February 15.

Hobie Cat Australasia has been able to secure the world championships for the region with the support of the New South Wales state government through its events promotion arm Destination New South Wales and the Shoalhaven City Council via Shoalhaven Water and Shoalhaven Holidays.

In more exciting news and show of strength of the largest multihull class in the world, Hobie Cat Company will announce an additional two more Hobie 16 World Championships in the next five years. That is a total of three Hobie 16 Worlds in five years . Again showing the strength of the Hobie Class and the great support by the Hobie Cat manufacturers.
