Hobie Cat® has been hosting Hobie sailing world championships since the first Hobie 16 titles were held in Hawaii in 1976. Fantastically competitive and ruthless events on the water, they are also great social occasions as well.
Born out of the same competitive spirit and camaraderie, in 2011 the 1st Hobie Kayak Fishing World Championship was held in Port Macquarie, New South Wales, Australia and was an outstanding success. Fishing World Championships have followed in Texas, USA; Victoria, Australia; Netherlands, Europe; Changshu, China; and most recently in Louisiana, USA.
The Hobie Fishing World Championships would not be possible without the vision, hard work and determination of the Hobie Cat team of event organisers. The commitment of the International community of Hobie anglers and of course the generous support of our sponsors and strategic partners, many of whom have been with the competition since its inception.
