Philippine Hobie Challenge 12
- Held from 10-17 March, 2012, the Blackberry 12th Philippine Hobie® Challenge took a fleet of intrepid sailors through the Philippines' last frontier: the remote island province of Palawan. Rated by National Geographic Traveler Magazine as South East Asia's best island destination and one of the top travel destinations in the world (2011), Northern Palawan will sets the stage for one of the most unique sailing adventures in the world. Over the course of the week, 20 Hobie 16 teams sailed through the hundreds of exotic islands, mangrove forests and remote beaches that comprise the island groups of Coron, Busuanga and Linapacan before navigating through the towering limestone karst cliffs of the Bacuit archipelago and finishing at the world famous marine reserve of El Nido.
- The scenery was spectacular; the seas and the wind, unpredictable; the on-the-water rivalries fierce; the off-the-water rivalries even fiercer, and the memories -- simply unforgettable.

Philippine Hobie Challenge 10
A Revised Notice of Race for the 10th Philippine Hobie Challenge has been issued and published on the event’s website ( www.philhobie.com )
Originally, it was intended to hold the International and National Championships on the 31 January and the 1 February, the weekend before the Challenge. Now the International and National Championships will be held at Laiya, Batangas immediately prior to the Challenge.
It is expected that all participants in the 10th Hobie Challenge, which is limited to 25 entries, will compete in both events.
The International and National Championships will consist of 2 days of short course racing with classes for Filipino Nationals, International Open, Ladies, Veterans and Youth.
The Philippine Hobie Challenge consists of two series of races. The Challenge Series which consists of 5 day races with competitors sailing up to 10 hours each day between island campsite locations. The Inshore Series consists of 5 races, each lasting approximately one hour. These races will take place in Romblon and in Boracay at the end of the Challenge Series.
The Challenge route starts in Laiya, Batangas with the first overnight stop at Tres Reyes, on the west coast of Marinduque. The second day ends at a beautiful Romblon beach where the Challenge will stay for 2 nights. On the third day there will be 2 Inshore Series races and a longer race around the nearby islands. On the fouth day the teams sail the full length of Tablas island to a campsite on the Southern tip. The fifth and last day of the Challenge takes the event around islands and ends on a beautiful Boracay beach.
Challenge Teams consist of 2 or 3 sailors with normally only 2 sailing at one time while the third crew member enjoys being a tourist for the day or helps with managing the event. Every day the personal baggage, boat spares, tents, food, drink, camping equipment and administration personnel are loaded onto the transport boats and moved to the next campsite.
The length of the course each day will be determined by the Race Officer considering the distance to the next campsite and the wind conditions. If the wind is light and the forecast does not indicate more wind later in the day, the course will be set directly to the next location. If there is good wind then the course will be set to go around some island and buoys to a predicted length of 5 to 8 hours sailing. The concept is for sailors to have the best days sailing possible with a planned arrival at the new location in the afternoon so they can explore and enjoy the beautiful island they are visiting.
The early arrival will also provide a chance for the sailors to be involved in the Hobie Foundations outreach programme. In the last 9 years the Hobie Challenge has passed through some of the most beautiful out of the way places in the Philippines. Sailors noticed that many of the villages lacked some of the basics of life, because they were out of the main stream. In one school visit recently by the sailors it was found that as well as a general lack of books, the school did not even have a blackboard for their teacher to write on.
During the 10th Challenge the Foundation will be visiting 5 villages and taking too them school books, educational videos, blackboards and chalk and a plan is afoot to take to some of the villages that need it a villages basic solar powered electricity systems so they can have free light and power without the expense of running a generator.
The Philippine Hobie Challenge Foundation is a non-stock non-profit Foundation that has the objectives of providing funding for the development of sailing throughout the Philippines, to provide a sailing school with boats and equipment, to fund and organize The Philippine Hobie Challenge and Hobie Traveller Series every year as well as to fund an outreach programme to benefit remote sea communities.
