The 2014 Boardwalk Hobie 16 Nationals – Thursday 20 March 2013 to Sunday 23 March 2013 (Friday 21 March is a Public Holiday)
We are once again very proud to be hosting this prestigious event and would like to take this opportunity to thank our sponsors – The Boardwalk Casino and Entertainment World together with Sebago for once again partnering us in this fantastic event – we hope to build on last year and grow this event to make it even bigger and better this time around – be sure not to miss out !
1 Some exciting things on the schedule:
The “Jester” has once again been chartered by Sebago and will be “cruising the bay” on Saturday morning from 10:30 to 13:00, by all accounts on those that joined last year and the spread that was laid on this is one trip not to miss for all the supporters/family/wives & children that are not going to be racing !!
We once again have a fantastic surprise from Sebago in the hand-out bag
