2. A Hobie 16 with Trapseats shall be sailed by a Crew with or without disAbility.

3. There shall be two Trapseats attached, one oh either side of the boat.

4. The crew ONLY may hike from any position.

5. When racing no part of the torso of the skipper shall pass the centerline (center lacing) of the boat.

6. Before a race the skipper shall nominate which side of the boat from which they will steer/helm the boat.

7. Rule 5 shall not apply in the event of a capsize.

8. No competitor will be disqualified due to assistance in the event of a capsize or other emergency deemed such by the Trapseat Class and/or race organizers.

9. Righting systems that are not motorized are legal to use when authorized by Trapseat Class and/or race organizers.

10. Races will take place in up to 15 knots.

11. Races will take place in protected waters and/or waters deemed safe by Trapseat Class and/or race organizers.

12. Hobie Baby Bob Mast Top floats can be use for safety purposes during races when approved by the Trapseat Authority and/or race organizers.

13. None Hobie parts and accessories can be used on any boat during races, such as non Hobie trampolines, etc. However no additional parts, gear, etc. can be added beyond Hobie Class rules. Also non-comptip masts are allowed. However when racing in Hobie class sanctioned events all items on one's boat must be Hobie class legal (meaning parts and accessories must be made by Hobie Cat). In the US and Canada Hobie Class sanctioned regattas masts must have comptips.

CAUTION: We do not advise trapezing off the Trapseats top tube as slipping off can cause injuries even though many racing crews do so at their own risk. Trapseats have been in production since 1984 with no incidents associated with damage to a Hobie 16, however be advised that using Trapseats on a new Hobie 16 can potentially void the boat warranty if Hobie determines an issue was caused by the Trapseats. As with any outdoor activity injury or death may result, and the Trapseat Authority, its sponsors, race organizers, and associated sailing clubs/associations takes no responsibility to said results or voided warranty when using Trapseats.
