The Broken Mast Regatta is one of the oldest continuous annual Hobie Regattas. This will be the 29th time that Hobie Fleet 134 of Memphis, Tennessee have celebrated the "Hobie Way of Life" by bringing catamaran sailors together for a weekend of fun, food, and racing.
The fun starts on Friday night, if you choose to arrive early and get setup, there will be a welcome party and something on the grill starting at 6:30pm June 4th. Breakfast Saturday and Sunday, lunch Saturday, and a sit down dinner Saturday featuring genuine Memphis Barbeque are all included in your entry fee. Also included are beautiful regatta t-shirts, door prizes, and the famous "broken mast" trophies.
Trophies will be awarded in four classes, Hobie 16, Hobie 17, Hobie 18, and open class. Lately the Broken Mast has been known as a major regatta for the Hobie 17 class, last year saw 15 Hobie 17's for some great one-design racing.
