Sailing World Hobie Sailboats


The Wild Cat—Hobie Cat Europe’s no-holds-barred Formula 18 class killer—is designed to efficiently feed your adrenaline addiction. Elegant, functional touches include wave-piercing bows, an integrated wing-mast section, high- aspect ratio daggerboards and rudders, dual trapezes, a spinnaker launching-and-retrieval system and seriously fast fiberglass hulls. Weight the trapeze wires and the Wild Cat immediately delivers real-world lessons in “evolving” apparent-wind angles. Caveat emptor: face-splitting smiles and unadulterated good times included!
