The Philippine Inter-Island Sailing Foundation has released the Notice of Race for the 15th Philippine Hobie Challenge, set for March 14-22, 2015. The route as specified in the NOR, will begin in Laiya, Batangas, and move on to Marinduque, Verde Island, Puerto Galera, Ambil Island, and end in Nasugbu, Batangas.
Hobie 16 sailors from all over the world are expected to participate in the annual staging of the Challenge, a unique race that combines long distance sailing, inshore races, the ultimate island hopping experience, and a humanitarian mission through an outreach program. Yachts and sailboats are also welcome to join the Rally Fleet.
Continuing the tradition of combining popular places and lesser-known destinations, PHC15 will be visiting the resort towns of Laiya, Puerto Galera, and Nasugbu, while also setting camp in the private beach of Ambil Island.
Those intending to participate must sign up as soon as possible to get priority on rooms and Hobie charters. The NOR and Entry Forms are available on event website.
