It came to a close on the 19th and took place in Toronto, Canada. “We came in as underdogs, and Grace said that we really just had to visualize racing well before we could try to go out and do it,” said Modderman. Hobie 16 (H16) is a popular catamaran manufactured by the Hobie Cat Company for racing and day sailing. Please contact your boat dealer in NJ for all your boating service needs.
