Our adventure with you
We are Caterina Degli Uberti and Giulia Ancillotti, a female team sailing on the Hobie Cat 16!
This year, we set ourselves an unprecedented goal: to participate in the Hobie Cat 16 World Championship, which will be held in Captiva Island, Florida, from 1 to 16 November 2019.
To tackle this adventure, we count especially on you! Our families are helping us since the beginning of the year, but we are convinced that everyone can help us achieve our dreams.
Thanks to this fund-raising we would like to cover at least partially the registration fees for the championship, travel and accommodation costs during the days spent in Florida.
We look forward to setting sail for this new adventure ... And are you ready to be part of it?
How funds will be used
All that we will be able to raise will be used for travel expenses, accommodation, to cover the registration fees for the championship and for renting the boat on the spot.
To give you an idea of the costs we will incur:
• We will spend around € 1200 for the journey by plane and for renting the car (which will be essential to move from Miami to Captiva Island, about 360km away)
• Approximately € 1200 for the Women and the Open registration fees, where we are already pre-qualified in the Semifinal
• The accommodation will require € 1800 (about 15 days in the resort that organizes the event, the only possible accommodation to avoid incurring extra costs every day to enter it)
• The boat and the sails will be made available by the organization of the event and € 500 will be requested for the rental
So, overall, the expenses amount to around € 4,600. For this we would need your help!
Who we are
We are Caterina and Giulia, two girls of 28 and 18 years passionate about sailing and speed since we were little. We both grew up in the catamarans' world, starting with Tyka and then falling in love with the Hobie Cat 16 and its #HobieWayOfLife philosophy. Our passion and desire to improve leads us each year to participate in national and international regattas.
Caterina was twice European Champion in the female category, in Austria in 2011 and in France in 2012, and Italian Youth Champion in 2006 and 2009, participating in the 2007 at the ISAF Youth World Championship.
This year, together we have earned the title of Women Italian Champions coming 11th out of 56 boats! Furthermore we have just concluded the European Championship in 20th place on 94 boats!
Our dream now is to participate in the Hobie Cat 16 World Championship in Florida and finally gain our place in the world panorama. An incredible adventure that will be possible only thanks to your help!
