2019 Hobie 16 Worlds Final Results


The Hobie 16 Worlds just took place in Florida (Nov. 1-16). Amazingly successful event with over 200 teams competing. Placed here are some great videos that show all the fun had by all who participated. See the results and more videos at this link hobieworlds.com

With all the push for foiling boats, higher and higher tech boats that come with ever increasing costs (and maintenance) its refreshing to see a 50 year old multihull class stronger that ever. Many new designed have come and gone over many years but the venerable Hobie 16 consistently moves along in a sea of inconsistent classes that die every time a new boat comes out. The goods is the Hobie 16 is solution to all the inconsistency and high cost.

Enjoy the videos and if you would like to learn more about the Hobie 16 please contact us/FunToSAIL.com

Ancient Sailing Series


New for 2020 is my our new Ancient Sailors Series (ASS) to show case that indeed ancient voyages via sailing vessels were not rare but a regular occurrence. It is my hope to also dispel the belief that only European nations had the ability to regularly sail the high seas.

It was common for European cultures to assume only they were civilized and all other cultures were inferior, even referring to the people of these cultures as savages. Even to this day it is taught and believed that the native peoples in North America had no horses until the Europeans arrived, yet ancient writing, art work, and oral traditions teach that the native people had horses, had cultures based on horses. Visit Indian Country Today and Sacred Way Sanctuary to learn more.

The Island people of the South and North Pacific was and still are a sea going culture. Arguable Island peoples sailing vessels were far superior in sailing performance to that of European vessels. Horses to the Europeans was their mode of transportation as sailboats and canoes/proas were to the Island peoples.

The Disney movie Moana was actually a accurate depiction of how important sailing was to the Island people. A lot of work went into this movie to make sure the sailing vessels and there other cultural depictions were accurate.

So its my hope you will enjoy the coming articles. Please make comments at the end of these articles as well on our future videos.
