Krystal Weir and Georgia Warren-Myers from Australia won the Hobie 16 Women’s World Championship and were thrilled to have achieved their goal.
“ The Hobie 16 Worlds has been awesome. We’ve been lucky to have a small but really competitive fleet to race against. I’ve had my champ crew with me, Georgia. On day one communication was a bit tricky for us because we haven’t sailed together much. On day two we changed things a lot and we were able to get it together.“
Georgia said, “ Things started changing in the third race of the first day. We kind of had a bit more discussion and the breeze got up a little bit and we just hit our element, because the only times that we really had sailed together had been in a fair bit of breeze.
When it came up we just went “Ah! yep, we know what we’re doing here” and we just went absolutely nuts. Day two we knew what each other wanted, it all clicked into gear and we had a great time. The 40kts that came up yesterday was awesome fun, we just had the best time in it.
It’s just amazing to be the world champions, that was the goal coming over here, it’s just such a relief really, just a joy.”
