Welcome Greece !

Greece has recently joined the EHCA as national association and will be known as the Hellenic Hobie Class Association. As the season progress they are going to get underway with newsletters each month at the very least.

For the time being, and until they are fully settled Simon Morgan will act as President and Thanos Vakalopoulos as secretary of the association in Vassiliki. We will meet them in Holland this summer, where they have entered  in the (double) Grand Master class and in the HC16 OPEN.

Wildwind sponsors the Hobie Cat MultiEuropeans in Austria


Dear Friends,

Joe Bennett and Marko Reynolds, our Wildwind manager and bosun in Vassiliki, achieved a superb 4th place at the Hobie Tiger World Championships in Lake Garda. This year we are delighted to announce that Wildwind are one of the main sponsors for the Hobie Cat MultiEuropeans, being held at the beautiful Lake Neusiedl in Austria, from 22-30 July.

As well as offering four amazing Wildwind holidays as prizes (two in Vassiliki and two in Mauritius), Wildwind, in association with VRSport TV, are sending a film crew to the Hobie Cat MultiEuropeans and footage of the spectacular racing will be available world-wide during and after the event.

Wildwind hosted the first ever Hobie championships in Greece back in 2001 – it was a typically windy week in Vassiliki and you can see plenty of serious action on the event video that was shown by Sky Sports all around the world (look out for some spectacular pitchpoles!).
