Worlds Selection

The 21st Hobie 16 World Championships entry page is now live and taking entries. The web site with all the information is


Australia has three prequalified spots allocated which are offered in order of finishing at the recent Australian Hobie 16 Championships at Port Stephens. We require confirmation from place getters as to whether they will be competing or not, so offers can be made down the line.


As soon as our three pre qualified spots are booked the IHCA Executive has granted Australia four (4) extra prequalified positions for the 21st Hobie 16 Worlds. The condition of them receiving these spots is:

  • They must have completed at the recent Australian Hobie 16 Championships at Port Stephens.
  • They must have finished in the top 15 at the recent Australian Championships


The offer is to be added AFTER the Australian prequalified have been used, e.g. If the top three Australians wish to take the prequalified spots allocated, then the IHCA positions can be added. If they don’t then Australian allocated position will be offered until all sailors have accepted. After all the Australian positions have been accepted then the IHCA positions maybe offered.


We would require the final commitment of the offer to be confirmed no later than Friday 11th March.
