Welcome to the 2019 Gim Hobelman One-design Regatta!

In 2019 we are breaking with Hobelman traditions to offer a different type of event with the goal of maximizing the number of participating boats and the fun and excitement of racing. For the first time, the regatta will be a 1-day event based on the Portsmouth Yardstick, which is a very accurate sailboat handicapping system specifically designed for one-design yachts. By making the Hobelman a timed event in which different classes can share a start, we do not have a minimum number of boats per class. Anyone who sails a one-design yacht up to 30 feet long is welcome to race. We hope this will make for hassle-free competitive racing. Please join us for a fun day of sailboat racing on June 23, 2019!

The regatta is being organized by Rhodes 19 Fleet 12 at Chicago Corinthian Yacht Club
