The Hobie Tiger at 2006 ISAF World Sailing Games

Hobie Cat Europe is proud to announce that the Hobie Tiger has been chosen as the open multihull support at the ISAF World Sailing Games that will take place from the 10th to the 20th of May 2006 in Lake Neusiedl, Austria.

As a matter of fact, on the 4th of March, John Dinsdale, acting as representative of Hobie Cat Europe, signed agreement with Koloman Watzek, representative of the ISAF World Sailing Games 2006 Durchführungsgesellschaft mbH, who organises this prestigious event, the most important sailing event, after the Olympic Games, in which the top catamaran sailors of the world are expected, racing on 29 brand new Hobie Tiger supplied by the Southern France company in Toulon. 

The Hobie Tiger is a three sail 18-foot, high-tech sport catamaran. It was introduced on the market in 1995 and since then has won most all the big F-18 cat races in the world. At the same time the Hobie Tiger class has grown all over the world and obtained in 2000 the International ISAF status. The 4th Tiger World Championships are scheduled later on this month, with nearly 100 Hobie Tigers racing in Santa Barbara, California, USA. 

Let us recall that Hobie Cat Europe already supplied the Hobie Cat 16 as the multihull support for the past ISAF World Sailing Games of Marseilles in 2002 and that Hobie Cat has been official supplier in all the ISAF World Sailing Championships since the first edition in 1994 in La Rochelle (France). 

In addition, Hobie Cat will also supply once again (for the 4th time) the Hobie Cat 16 Spi to the ISAF Youth Sailing Worlds from 14 to 23 July 2005 in Busan (Korea).
