This Hobie 16 sailing tutorial takes you on a classic joyride with live commentary and multi-camera footage from the senior Wildwind instructor. Filmed in Vassiliki, Greece this is excellent sailing weather in one of the best locations in Europe.
This tutorial gives you a look at boat set-up, crew positioning and how best to look good for the camera boat.
The Hobie 16 revolutionized multihull sailing. The Hobie 16 was unleashed on the Southern California beach scene in 1970 and sailing was instantly transformed.
The beach-launched Hobie 16 brought the sport to legions of speed-loving sailors. The catamaran’s lightweight, asymmetrical fiberglass hulls provide lift and its dual-trapeze rig lets you and your crew member harness its sheer power. Now, 45 years and over 100,000 boats later, the Hobie 16 occupies a coveted spot in the Sailboat Hall of Fame and consistently delivers big-grin sailing and world-class racing. Fly a hull and you’ll understand the global obsession!
Since the late eighties, Wildwind has gained a reputation as one of the best sailing holiday companies in the world. Our flagship centre in Vassiliki, Greece, has been running since 1987 and runs strong on the extremely high number of repeat visitors who come back year after year. Since 2014, Wildwind also offers sailing holidays in Mont Choisy, on the tropical Indian Ocean island of Mauritius, offering sailing holidays all year round.
Our fleet includes everything from simple beginner boats (such as Laser Bugs and RS Quba’s), right through to extreme performance equipment: 49er, RS 800, SB3, Tornado, F18 Hobie Tigers and pretty much everything in between. Whatever your skill level or sailing ambition, we’ll always have the right equipment for you.
Wildwind is an RYA recognised centre but, unlike many sailing holiday centres, we offer the entire range of dinghy and multihull courses at no extra charge. When you arrive, just let us know that you are keen. Our instructors are a standard above everyone else: most have a serious racing pedigree and some have even won national championships. You can join in special training weeks at the beginning of the season with Olympic coaches. Ask anyone in the sailing business where they would like to go on a beach based sailing holiday and you’ll find that Wildwind’s name comes up over and over again.
