Hobie 16 North American Championship 2005
Ventura, California, USA

The Youth and Women's Hobie 16 North Americans concluded on Friday with a third day of good racing and winds of about ten knots.
Although the racing in the youth fleet was tight at times the Guatemalans always came out on top. Jason and Alexander HESS ended the series with a perfect score of all first place finishes. Last year's champions, Michael SIAU and Trey JAMES (USA) finished second with Canadians Andrew ROBINS and Trent FREEMAN third.

In the women's fleet the win went to former World Champion Annie NELSON and Kathy KULKOWSKI (USA). Worrell 1000 veteran Sandra TARTAGLINO and Eileen HAUBL (USA) came on strong in the end to finish the series in second. Mary LINDSAY and Barbara ROETTGER (USA) were third.

Racing for the open championship starts today. The winds over the weekend have been unseasonably light making it hard to get through the surf. When the wind does come up it tends to be late in the day and could make for some late afternoons on the water.
