Greg and Jacques will be putting the new US designed Hobie F18 NA through its paces at the Coronado spring regatta this weekend. It will be interesting to see how the new boat performs against the Tigers and other open class boats. Greg says the new boat smokes down wind! Jacques calls the new design the "Hobie Foxicorn" since the hull shape somewhat follows the Fox and Capricorn design lines and bows. Should be interesting! We are expecting this new design to be produced at our Australia facility starting in the fall.
