2003 Hobie Cat North American Continental Championships
Dewey Beach, Delaware

Four races were sailed yesterday at the Hobie 16 North American Continental Championship. The first race started in single trapeze conditions but as each leg of each race was sailed the wind picked up steadily.
By the third beat of the fourth race the wind speed was measured at thirty knots with higher gusts. By the end of the fourth race most of the boats were either on the beach or upside down! Twenty-eight boats, out of seventy, were able to finish.

The Brazilian team of Brubo DIBERNARDI and Suzi PIRILLO dominated in the breeze winning the last two races. They moved up from 15 to seventh. Supposed light air specialist Paul and Mary Ann HESS held onto the lead with all single digit finishes.

Racing concludes today.
