Preparing for the World Championships
Meet William and Lucinda
With the Hobie 16 World Championships in Spain kicking off in a week or so, former Hobie 16 World champions William and Lucinda Edwards were guests of Wildwind in Vassiliki. They made optimal use of Vassiliki’s typically strong winds to do a little pre-regatta training.
William kindly offered up his valuable insights into how to tune a Hobie 16 for world-class performance. You can see the whole 25-minute lecture here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3DMfOHqy_EU on Wildwind maestro Joe Bennett’s excellent YouTube channel Joyrider TV.
Wildwind delegation to the World Championships
Not just William and Lucinda will be competing but also Wildwind-founder Simon Morgan, who will be racing in the Great Grand Masters class with former Wildwind staff member and 420 British Womens’ champion Bryony Spiezia. Simon and Bryony recently picked up first place at the Carey Olsen training regatta in Jersey, so they are in good form and are really looking forward to the regatta.
The *very* last places for the 2022 season
The Wildwind season in Greece finishes on October 9th and we have a very few places left, only on that week and in the week of September 25th. If you are keen for a late get away, get in touch quickly. Our fabulous Mauritius sailing centre, of course, is open year round.
