Open Semi Finals Begin

Today is the first day in the 21st Hobie® 16 World Championships Open Semi Finals and those that made the cut will be joined by the pre qualified sailors from around the world to wage their campaign for the coveted title of World Champion. It’s time to get serious!

Currently outside, the clouds have lifted and we have blue skies and a temperature of 26ºC (79ºF) at 6:30am. The Dapeng New District is expecting a maximum of 29ºC (90ºF) but it will be hot and humid and feel more like 39ºC (102ºF). The UV factor is once again sitting in the high range.

Wind is predicted to blow SSE at a rate of 6-12kts and it looks like we have a great day of racing ahead of us.
