Classic Cup Hobie Cat Races ~ August 20-21

The Wildwoods, NJ – August 1, 2011 – Neon-colored sails will flood the waters along the Wildwoods’ award-winning beaches during the Wildwoods Classic Cup XXVII Hobie Cat Races Saturday, August 20 and Sunday, August 21 between Spencer and Schellenger Avenues on the beach.

Despite being one of the East Coast’s last remaining ocean Hobie Cat Regattas, it’s really the challenging racecourse that attracts huge crowds of sailors and sailing enthusiasts to the Wildwoods Classic Cup every August. For many, the fun has more to do with the revelry that surrounds the annual event. The regatta’s presence is also known to vacationers who can take photos next to the sleek-looking Hobies, whose eye-popping, neon-colored sails flail in the wind.

The Wildwoods Classic Cup is one of the most anticipated regattas of the year and is a sanctioned regatta for all Hobie Classes. The races are FREE for spectators to enjoy.

Races begin at 11 a.m. on Saturday, August 20, and at 9:30 a.m. on Sunday, August 21, weather permitting.
