Sailing 250 nautical miles in Paradise

One of the most challenging and beautiful sports events is taking place every February in the Philippines—the Philippine Hobie Challenge.

It is island hopping at its best. The organizers make sure that you will find your dream island after many hours of sailing. The event lasts for seven days and consists of five days of island hopping and two days of in-shore races at the beginning and at the end.

The most wonderful thing about the event is that sailors from around the world participate: from Alaska to Australia, from Europe to the Philippines. Winds change from calm to stormy, waves from gentle to bizarre, encounters from dolphins to aircraft carriers but coke is always with rum.

Trust me, you don’t take pictures on a Hobie when the sea is real rough.
