Poole Yacht Club Hobie Cat

Welcome to the Hobie 16 section and hope it inspires you to join this exciting but easy to sail multihull. We race Monday nights and Weekends depending on the format and have an easy launching area off the beach next to the club.

There is an active Facebook group for up to date news and messages and let me know if you fancy a trial sail, buying advice or more info.
