2014 Open Danish Hobie Cat 16 Nationals concluded
Svendborg Sunds Sejlklub 13-14 September
This years Danish Nationals were held at picturesque Svendborg Sound. Saturday with lots of sun saw winds blowing 12-16 knots from a northeasterly direction increasing Sunday to 15-20 knots in a more gray weather setting.
A combination of land-effect, current and a shifty breeze provided the competitors quite challenging conditions in both tactics and boat handling.
The Nationals were held in HC16 Classic and HC16 SPI. Eight teams from Germany took the way up and gave the event a bit of interantional glory and not least very qualified competion to the Danes! :-)
