When you think about what Boracay has a lot of – Hotels, restaurants, resorts, clubs, pubs and sand all come to mind. But there is one other important thing that can be found here in abundance – WIND!
In Boracay It’s that time of year again when the salty dogs of the sea fight it out on the open water. Hobie Cats, cruising keelboats, ocean multi-hulls powerboats and more. It’s racing season in the Philippine archipelago!
The island-hopping Philippine Hobie Challenge and Keelboat rally will run from the 12th of February to the 18th, starting in Lucena and ending in Boracay. The Philippine Hobie Challenge has been an anual event for the past ten years, providing sailors with an entertaining way to enjoy the unique island scenery found in the Philippines.
Following the Philippine Hobie challenge, is the Subic to Boracay Race, organized by SAGS, starting on Saturday 19 February 2011.
The Subic bay to Boracay Race is a 200-mile offshore competitive sailing event open to all racing yachts, cruising yachts and catamarans.
It takes the fleet from Subic Bay to Boracay Beach along a 200-mile course that brings out the best in long distance competitive sailors.
The racing fleet will sail out of Subic Bay, along the Batangas coast, through the Verde Island Passage and down the East coast of Mindoro before running off the wind to Boracay Beach.
We wish all the participants the best of luck!!
